Group Description

This list is for anyone interested in the History of the Old Erie Canal; From its first days of construction in 1817 to discussion of what's left of it now, such as old locks, decaying aqueducts, culverts and towpaths. Please Ask Questions or Post on any Erie Canal related topic including its people: Was your Grandfather a Lock Tender, a Boat Captain or a Toll Collector? Discuss history including washouts and boat groundings, everyday operations such as packet boats versus freight boats. Welcome topics also include related historical societies, old Canal Photographs, Canal view postcards and relevant news. We have a Great Collection of Lock and Aqueduct images by members in the Photos section, and we are always interested in seeing more, therefore our Members are highly encouraged to post photos to the group. We'd love to hear from you!
