The post Civil War Industrial Revolution propelled Erie toward a manufacturing economy. Watson Manufacturing (now GAF) built a facility at the site of the defunct Erie Extension Canal operations. The city developed the adjacent land into a modern water delivery system and a municipal park. Erie promoted the ready availability of water as an inducement to industrial development. The red brick building complex remains as a monument to this once grand operation.
