  • Beautiful historic park surrounding the Old Erie Canal Lock. Built in 1851, the grounds have been restored and well maintained. The paths down to the Erie House are wheelchair accessible and it's well worth the stop. This park is extremely dog friendly, they not only allow dogs, but thank you for bringing them along. All of this is due to their historical mascot Mod the dog who protected the Erie house and its residents. Wonderful stop along the New York Thruway!
  • What a wonderful exhibit explaining the building and use of the Erie Canal! Amazing how it was engineered and constructed without modern equipment! Knowledgeable Volunteers give visitors an insight to the daily life on the Canal. Clean bathrooms, a vending machine area and tourist flyers of the area. For the historical information and maintenance effort of the volunteers, a hearty donation is well worth it! 👍
