On Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at 7 p.m., at the Canastota Public Library, the Canastota Canal Town and Library will host a Canalside Talk “Life In and Around a Lift Bridge.”
Get a feeling about the economic, social and political culture of the early 1900s. Come and join us for an evening program about “Canastota’s Lift Bridge and the many stories around it,” by Joe DiGiorgio of the Canal Town Museum.
The presentation will highlight the fascinating and humorous history of events behind the lift bridge, its surroundings and its people. The talk is the second in a series celebrating the bicentennial anniversary of the beginnings of the Erie Canal. See how the present is linked to the past to enrich the future. Free to the public.
