  • National Canal Museum
    The National Canal Museum is dedicated to telling the story of America's historic towpath canals. Easton's Hugh Moore Park is a picturesque extension of the City of Easton where America's golden age of canals is on full display. With more than two miles of restored Lehigh Canal, a canal boat attraction unlike any other in Pennsylvania and the rest of the Northeast, and one of the country's largest canal heritage museums, the 520-acre park nestled between the Lehigh Canal and Lehigh River is a throwback to the years when mules pulling canal boats on narrow towpaths was a common sight in much of the United States east of the Mississippi River. The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor interprets this fascinating period of American history in the park through tours of the National Canal Museum and rides on the 110-passenger Josiah White II canal boat. The National Canal Museum is open seasonally, from June until October. Explore our fun, hands-on exhibits highlighting 19th century canal life and technology. Easton, Pennsylvania

  • Pennsylvania Canal Society
    Pennsylvania's canals were built during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The canals were dug by men whose tools were picks, shovels and wheelbarrows. Hard work, poor living conditions and disease took many lives. But it was these burly men and their "water highway" that began the industrial revolution and opened the northwest territory. The aim of the Society is to preserve the rich heritage of canaling in Pennsylvania; to promote the preservation and restoration of existing canal sites; to encourage canal research; and to make available to the public materials on canals, their operation and history. Easton, Pennsylvania
