Delaware & Hudson Canal Museum

Delaware & Hudson Canal Museum

Nearly 4,000 artifacts maps, models, paintings, and documents relating to the canal’s 185-year history are on display in the 19th-century Gothic Revival chapel, including a wall-sized map of the 108-mile canal and portraits of Delaware and Hudson president John Wurts and New York governor Dewitt Clinton. An adjacent one-half mile nature trail, known as the Five Locks Walk, leads to locks 16 through 20 of the original canal.

We hope you enjoy our work.
