Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor
50 years ago, on May 4th, the National Canal Museum opened its doors for the first time. Today, we acknowledge 50 years of open doors and remember the life of Lance E. Metz, who we can attribute much of the success and growth of those 50 years to.
With great sorrow, we report that Metz passed away this weekend due to complications with COVID-19 and remember this historian, dear friend and great supporter.
