Join trained docents from the Erie Canal Museum for a guided walking tour of the historic Syracuse Heritage Area on Monday, July 29 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 in the heart of the city, and takes participants through Hanover Square as it leads them back to the Museum and the historic, 1850 Syracuse Weighlock Building. Participants learn how the waterway shaped all aspects of the community, and see how the downtown neighborhood changed since the days when the Canal was an integral part of 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 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.
