Jordan is a village in Onondaga County, New York, United States. The population was 1,314 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Syracuse Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The Village of Jordan is located in the northwest part of the Town of Elbridge, west of Syracuse.



The village bloomed with the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825. Due to the canal, Jordan became larger than Elbridge Village, farther south.

Jordan became an incorporated village in 1835.

In 1983, much of the village was included in the Jordan Village Historic District and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
