HISTORICAL SITES, MUSEUMS AND TOURISM LINKS

  • Camillus Erie Canal Park -- Camillus Landing, near the historic village of Camillus, New York, was the midpoint of the Erie Canal. The Canal Park encompasses the first enlargement of the Erie Canal as it crosses the township of Camillus, and includes a reproduction canal grocery, a water-filled lock demonstration, and the reconstructed Nine Mile Creek Aqueduct.
  • Erie Canal Museum -- A private, nonprofit corporation, housed in the 1850 Weighlock Building, where canal boats were weighed during the days when they traveled through the center of Syracuse on the Erie Canal. As the official Syracuse Heritage Area Visitor Center, the Museum is also the place to learn about local and state history.
  • Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum -- Located within the Old Erie Canal State Historic Park in Central New York State. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, 96-foot long cargo boats were built and repaired on this site. The Museum tells of the construction of these boats, the workings of the restored dry docks and the social history of the canal area.
  • Erie Canal Lock 33, St. Johnsville, New York -- A site devoted to the history and preservation of Enlarged Erie Canal Lock No. 33, with some information about the surrounding area.
  • Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site -- A site with many structures dating from the three eras of the Erie Canal's development. The eastern end of the site includes the remains of Enlarged Erie Canal Lock No. 28 and Putman's Lock Stand, which houses an exhibit on Erie Canal stores. The center of the site includes the remains of Old Erie Canal Lock No. 20 and the remains of Enlarged Erie Canal Lock No. 29. The western end includes the site's largest structure: the remains of the Schoharie Aqueduct, which carried the water of the Enlarged Erie Canal over Schoharie Creek. Adjacent to the site is the current Erie Canal Lock No. 12. The Friends of Schoharie Crossing also have a blog site at www.friendsofschohariecrossing.blogspot.com .
