Downtown Lockport Walking Tour

Tue, Sep 27
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Admission starts at: $7
Old City Hall • 2 Pine Street, Lockport 14094

Description

Lockport is a canal town unlike any other on the Erie Canal.  Growing out of a need to scale the Niagara Escarpment, the Flight of Five is an engineering feat that has long attracted visitors to this area.  While Lockport is well known for its important role in the success of the Erie Canal, there is more to Lockport than just the Locks.  This tour will explore the development of Lockport from the early 1800s to modern times, including the humble Quakers who founded the town, inventors who brought about economic and cultural development, beautiful architecture and even a stop on the Underground Railroad.

Meet outside Old City Hall at 2 Pine Street, Lockport, NY 14094. Parking is available on the street or in the adjacent parking lot.

Walking Tour Prices: 

This tour is free for the summer of 2022, beginning June 1st, thanks to the generous support of the New York State Canal Corporation and Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.
