There are a lot of fun details in the model - which depicts the aqueduct, Lock 30, Browns Cash Store and a section of the canal prism as well as the Whipple -or farm- bridge. The Friends of Schoharie Crossing were involved in the funding of this model and were awarded grants by the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor that went into this amazing creation. The fine folks at the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, & Historic Preservation, as well as the Historic Preservation Bureau on Peebles Island were instrumental in the fine workings of the new Pathway to Empire exhibit.
