“The Canal That Never Was: The History of the Erie and Sodus Canals”–Free presentation by Russell Andrews, Chair of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor. Learn about the history of New York State’s greatest engineering feat–the Erie Canal. This waterway created a worldwide market for New York’s agricultural and manufactured goods, bringing an influx of wealth to upstate canal towns and making New York the Empire State. Plans were made to connect Sodus Bay to the Erie Canal, thereby creating a shipping port. Find out why this never happened.
