In 2000, during the paving of a parking lot at the new Manlius Historical Society, they unearthed a 1400 lb blue limestone stepping stone - the kind use by blacksmiths to ferry customers out of their carriages for horseshoe or wagon repairs. After a bit of research, they found they had built on the land of Peter, a blacksmith & at one time co-owner of the largest carriage building factory in central NY, who had owned the property for over 60 years.

Week of 15 Jul 1894: BEYOND THE PORTALS. The oldest and one of the most respected residents of this village, Mr Peter Wormood, died at his residence on Pleasant Street on Thursday morning last at half past twelve. Mr Wormood was born in Cherry Valley, Otsego county, March 7, 1800 and came to this place with his parents in 1807, where he has lived ever since. At the age of 17 years he was apprenticed in a blacksmith shop until he became 21 years of age. He afterwards worked in the machine shop of May's cotton factory and until 1865 conducted a blacksmith shop on the site of the village lockup. He built the house in which he lived over sixty years and where he died. The firm of Duell, Hopkins and Wormood, some fifty years ago, was the largest wagon factory in this part of the state. Mr Wormood's father was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and his uncle was shot at the massacre at Cherry Valley. On April 26, 1826, he married Alphleda Janes, who died Feb 12, 1875. By this union, he had eight children, four of whom are now living. They are: Mrs Campbell of Springfield, NY, William Wormood of Dubuque, IA, Norman Wormood of Lake Geneva, WI, and Mrs. M.B. Snook of Fayetteville. On June 28, 1876, Mr. Wormood married Julia E. Tuthill, at that time a resident of Homer, NY, who survives him. Mr Wormood united with the Methodist church in 1831 and up to the time he received a stroke of paralysis about three years ago was an active member. Mr Wormood was a very conscientious man, quiet and unostentatious, and commanded the respect and confidence of those with whom he came in contact. He was one of the kindest of husbands and fathers, ever obliging and indulgent. The funeral service was held at the family residence on Saturday afternoon and largely attended.
