Tales from the Morris Canal
November 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Once a key factor for commerce in the 19th century, the Morris Canal made history for its use of inclined planes and locks to transport coal and iron to cities in the Northeast. Come travel through time to learn the history of the Morris Canal and discover what remains of the canal here in Liberty State Park today. This program will include a 60-minute Power Point presentation and discussion, followed by a walking tour to the Morris Canal Big Basin.
