The Erie Canal Museum in downtown Syracuse, New York, will celebrate its 58th anniversary on October 25, 2020. On Thursday, October 8 at 12 p.m., Curator Ashley Maready will share answers to the most common questions about the institution and its artifacts. The program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the second-floor Weighlock Gallery, 318 Erie Boulevard East, Syracuse.*
Maready will use research findings and items from the Museum’s collection to discuss the history of this major heritage site. She will also answer common questions about the 1850 National Register Weighlock Building. Our mission is to showcase and preserve this building, the last of its kind in America. The Weighlock Building stands as a monument to the Erie Canal’s transformative role in the history of the United States.
The program will include time for questions. Parking is available at meters on the street, and a limited number of spots are available in the lot across the street. Join us for this fascinating, free presentation!
