CLINTON'S DITCH: THE STORY OF THE BUILDING OF THE ERIE CANAL

~"Our waterways are our pride and joy as is the history of our Great Canal."

~"Stay for the day as you come for the play."

 


"We will be celebrating the genius of DeWitt Clinton and the perseverance of the American spirit!  The completion of this remarkable link to our wide open West was against all odds and most political reckoning.  The stubborn, hardworking, immigrant Irish continued their monumental task despite unrelenting hardships.  That is a testament to our heritage and the strength of an idea to make New York State the pathway to a great nation."

 

"More than 200 years ago, DeWitt Clinton and his caravan traveled this region to see if the canal idea was indeed a possibility.  Join us to see the rest of the story!  Because of the personal trials of this great man, we are partnering with the Cayuga County Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness to erase the stigma of depression and mental illness."
