Our student group really enjoyed the trip on the canal today. It was a great experience for them to see the Erie canal locks rise and fall and to better understand the history of our region. Mrs. Anderson
Our group really liked hearing about the history of the canal. Our guide was very knowledgeable  and was able to answer all of our questions. Thank you again. Melisa Beauchesne
