A truly fun tour, with quite a few unusual opportunities that no other tour has ever provided. 
As a special finale activity, each of our visitors will have an opportunity to step into the shoes of an 1842 Flight of Five Lock Tender and work alongside our Flight of Five Tender Crew, to move the balance beams, and open the gates that allow the “Erie Traveler” to pass through the restored locks! Can YOU work the locks like they used to? We know you can!

This makes a fantastic finale to our tour exploration of Uppertown's historic iconic sites, an Underground Railroad Station, and discover a true Lockport Civil War Celebrity. We will hike down to walk along the Historic Mill Race area in our Industrial District, where the Erie Canal's water power was harnessed to run the mills and factories of Lowertown of the 1800s and learn more about the lost lifestyle of the Canalers!

Meet at the Discovery Center - corner of Church St and Ontario St. Ample free parking is available close by
