Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wood Creek is a creek in central New York and flows from Rome, New York to Fish Creek in Sylvan Beach (and then Oneida Lake). It is the west-flowing waterway of the Oneida Carry, an important portage in the early history of New York. It flows into Oneida Lake, and from there a boat could pass via the Oswego River all the way to Lake Ontario, and onto the rest of the Great Lakes system. Near the furthermost upstream navigable water of Wood Creek was the location of Fort Bull and Fort Wood Creek during the French and Indian War. A number of other forts were built in the area to protect Wood Creek and the Oneida Carry by the British, including Fort Stanwix. Later in the 18th century parts of the creek were improved to provide better access for larger watercraft, and the Rome Canal that connected the Mohawk River to Wood Creek across the Oneida Carry completed the water path from the Hudson River to the Great Lakes.
