Upcoming Events

Topic: Erie Canal Heritage Park – Tour and Records Relocation and Preservation Discussion
Date: June 29, 2022 11:00am-12:00pm

Join us for a tour of an 1800’s canal lock and a historic tavern that once bustled with canal travelers to learn more about the Erie Canal and the historic resources and records preserved at the Erie Canal Heritage Park in Port Byron. The park incudes a visitor center, Lock 52, and the restored 1894 Erie House Tavern & Hotel, mule barn and blacksmith shop. We will learn more about how they are collecting and preserving historic canal objects and records to share information and stories about the 19th century waterway with visitors. They also are just starting a project to move their large archives collection to a new location ½ mile from the park, and are excited to share with us their plans and what the project involves. Depending on where they are in the project, we may get to tour that as well. Feel free to join us for some pizza after the tour or bring your own lunch.

Erie Canal Heritage Park

Located along the NYS Thruway between exits 40 and 41, the park is accessible from a dedicated eastbound Thruway exit, as well as from NY Route 31 in Port Byron.
