The Oneida County History Center is set to unveil their new exhibit, 'Downtown at it's Best' that will highlight what the City looked like during it's most prosperous point in time.

The exhibit will open on August 18, at the Oneida County History Center on 1608 Genesee Street in Utica.

You'll be able to see what Utica looked like in the '50's and '60's and beyond with photos and display that look back on when the streets were lined with thriving department stores, theaters and restaurants.

If you remember places like The Boston Store, Woolworths, JB Wells, Dolyle-Knower, Kewpees, White Tower, the Uptown, the Olympic theater, and the Avon, then this exhibit is sure to take you back.

Or if you don't remember those days, you can go back in time see what Utica looked like before you were born.

I personally am too young to remember these places, but I know my Dad has fond memories of browsing through the Boston Store.

How about you?
