Have you wondered, "What are these boxes and what were they used for?
These boxes have historical value and were used in a variety of ways. In circa 1900
they were used on Onondaga Lake, Syracuse, NY for oil barges to tie up to while
waiting to unload the oil for transport to other locations. They were later brought
to this location to catch debris before it reached the route 350 catch gate in the
Old Erie Canal to your left.
If you know of any other uses, please contact the Erie Canal Museum at
www.eriecanalmuseum.org. or 315-471-0593. Let the historian know so, this great piece
of history will not be lost.
In order to preserve the history of these boxes, do not sit, climb or stand on them. Thank you.
