A while back as part of the Jervis Public Library's 125th Anniversary Celebration, the site offered up this online video program:
#ErieCanal Canal Society of New York State Rome, New York
Historic Erie Canal
David Brooks, Education Director at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, presents the virtual program "A Crossing Situation: The Erie Canal at the Schoharie Creek" on Thursday, July 16 at 6:30pm. This program explains how Schoharie Creek was an impediment to the Erie Canal before the artificial river opened, and how Erie Canal engineers and builders determined how to cross the waters of the Schoharie from the earliest dam to the incredible John B. Jervis-designed Schoharie Creek Aqueduct, and what that meant for the success of the Erie Canal. Part of Jervis Public Library's 125th anniversary series of virtual events.
