Additional Resources

The following organizations are friends of the Canal Society of New York State and offer other aspects of local canal exploration. We encourage you to check out their websites as you plan your time along the canals.

Erie Canal Mapping Project

Bill Lesher has created a website devoted to cataloging the current status and location of all that remains of the old Erie Canal and the various sidecut canals. Although it will always be a work in progress, there is a solid amount of information on the Erie Canal itself, as well as substantial information on the sidecut canals, particularly the Black River and Chenango Canals.
