Join the Erie Canal Museum for a guided walking tour of the Downtown Syracuse Heritage Area on Thursday, July 25 at 12 p.m.
The tour begins at the Museum, located at 318 Erie Boulevard East in Syracuse. It follows the route of the 19th century Erie Canal through Clinton Square, and takes participants through Hanover Square as it leads them back to the Museum and the 1850 Syracuse Weighlock Building. Participants learn how the waterway shaped all aspects of the community, and see how the neighborhood changed since the days when the Canal was part of downtown Syracuse.
This program is free for Erie Canal Museum members and children aged 17 and under, and $10 for the general public. Tickets may be purchased through the Shop page of our website or at the door. Museum members are asked to call (315) 471-0593, extension 12, to reserve a space. Free parking is available in Museum-designated spots in the lot across the street under routes 81 and 690.
Additional guided walking tours of downtown Syracuse will take place this summer, so be sure to check this website and our Facebook page for new dates and times. We look forward to seeing you for this fun and interesting program!
The Erie Canal Museum is partially funded by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
