Do you have interesting stories, facts or historical information regarding the area of the old path of the Erie Canal that spans from Camillus to DeWitt? You may be able to help with a new project to promote interest in the history and cultural significance of the area.
Spanning the Gap is a project that was spurred from last year’s Elevating Erie ideas competition as a means to stimulate projects that would revitalize the path of the old Erie Canal and create ways for it to become more versatile. Recently, the town of DeWitt was awarded a $75,000 grant from the New York State Council of the Arts to help fund Spanning the Gap.
