After we finished visiting Lake Ontario and the lighthouse, we travel to Pittsford so I could see the Erie Canal.
So what is the Erie Canal? Back in the 1820’s, they built this canal to connect the Hudson River to Lake Erie. It was a way of moving goods from one area to another. In Ohio, where I live, there was two canals built – Miami Erie Canal and the Ohio Erie Canal. The Miami Erie Canal is in the Western part of Ohio where I live. Both of those canals connected the Lake Erie to the Ohio River.
