Notes
Survey number HAER NY-14
Building/structure dates: 1824 initial construction
Significance: The Champlain Canal was built to link Lake Champlain with the Erie Canal and with the tidewater of the Hudson River. The Canal is presently part of the New York State Barge Canal system, the most extensive in the United States. When the Barge Canal was built, c. 1911-15, most of the original alignment of the Erie and Champlain Canals was abandoned, although it was followed generally. The Champlain portion of the Barge Canal, which accommodates tug and barge traffic, for much of its route at the lower end is the canalized Hudson River.
