The H. Lee White Marine Museum in Oswego is one of 10 grant recipients to fund education and preservation projects along the Erie Canalway.
The Erie Canalway Natonal Heritage Corridor is investing $65,530 in grants, which will be matched by $478,000 in private and public project money raised by grant recipients.
The grants are aimed at inspiring people to learn more about New York’s legendary canals and further explore the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.
The H. Lee White museum will use its $4,000 for an Oswego Canal Photo Essay, “Then and Now.” The museum will develop a photo essay documenting changes in the Oswego Canal and adjacent landscape using historical and current day images.
The exhibit will travel to multiple Oswego Canal communities for display.
