Description:
Learn about the transformation happening in downtown Lockport

Join Chairman David Kinyon, and Vice Chairman David Chatt of the Lockport Locks Heritage District Corporation

Kinyon will present an overview of the Lock Tenders Tribute Monument, and the development of the Erie Canal Flight of Five Interpretive Plan. The new monument will memorialize the iconic 1897 photo of 12 Lockport Lock Tenders and a little girl, taken by F.B. Clench on the stairway between the westbound and eastbound Flight of Five Locks. Kinyon will discuss the selection of Lewiston artist Susan Geissler to create and install the monument and the steps that are currently underway in the fabrication of the cast bronze sculptures

David Chatt will follow with a brief review of the Phase I rehabilitation, which involved locks 69 and 70, as well as a discussion of the Phase II rehabilitation of Lock 68
