Significance: Locks 39-43 near Boonevill are typical of the 109 locks that comprised the 25 miles of the Black River Canal. A feeder to the Erie Canal, the Black River Canal remained in use until 1923 and outlasted many other feeder canals to the Erie. The good condition of these locks make them valuable examples representing typical canal construction of the 19th century.
