Patrick Reynolds, the Museum Educator for the Rome Historical Society, gives us an example of the speech you'll hear at Bellamy Harbor, July 22 at 12 noon with Honor America Days Bicentennial Canal Celebration.
The Erie Canal started it's construction 200 years ago on July 4, 1817, in Rome N.Y. In a ceremony, local contractor Samual Richardson was the first to turn his spade into the ground. The Erie Canal construction was underway.
Well, believe it or not the canal original opening for the season was scheduled for May 19th. Our very wet April appeared to have that date in jeopardy and just within the past few days the conditions have improved greatly.in the Finger Lakes/Central New York region allowing the opening day to move back to the original date of Friday May 19th
When was the last time you saw anything being shipped on the Erie Canal? You'll once again get the chance to see shipping in action later this month when Genesee Brewery will ship 12 fermentation tanks from Albany to Rochester.
Did you know the first canal ever built in New York State was the Erie Canal? It happens to also run right through the heart of Central New York and if you're looking for stuff to do this Summer, the trails along this historic waterway offer plenty of recreational options.
