Canal at Dusk

Today, I read some wonderful news about the Erie Barge Canal……it has been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places! It is about time! The canal is a huge part of the history of New York State and was the main reason many small town were established – including Albion! The canal was considered an engineering marvel and still is even by today’s standards……hand dug by immigrants with locks and gates to account for changes in elevation and flood control just about all the way across this great state of ours and bridges that have stood the test of time and are still in operation today! So, to commemorate this amazing news, I stopped along the canal to take some photos at dusk this evening……here they are!

Oh – and here is the link to the article about the National Registry distinction on the Orleans Hub:
