Lunchtime Lecture: The Erie Canal’s Early Years
September 7 @ 12:00 pm
Erie Canal expert Craig Williams will discuss what life was like in Upstate New York when navigation first began on the Erie Canal almost two centuries ago. Williams recently retired as a senior historian at the New York State Museum after more than thirty years of service. From 1978 to 1983 he was the director of the DeWitt Historical Society of Tompkins County in Ithaca. He was curator at the Erie Canal Museum from 1976 through 1977. The talk is part of a series of lunchtime lectures at the Museum, and includes a question and answer period. $5 per person; free for Museum members. Purchase tickets via PayPal below or at the door. Free parking is available in Museum-designated spots across the street under routes 81 and 690. We hope you will join us!
