Mother of Cities
The Erie Canal is often called the "Mother
of Cities" because it spurred the growth of
boom cities such as Syracuse, Buffalo, Utica,
Cleveland, Milwaukee and Chicago.
A Financial Force
The Erie Canal helped finance
ventures such as the Louisiana
Purchase and the transcontinental
railroad, both of which helped
transform our nation.
