D&H Canal Park Visitor Center

A History talk with Martha Capwell Fox the museum and archives coordinator for the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor on the Lehigh Navigation. Wednesday, August 14th 2019  AT 7:00 PM 

Come join us in examining the great rival to the Delaware and Hudson Canal… the Lehigh Navigation. The Lehigh was built a few years before the completion of the D&H and carried a significant amount of anthracite to tide-water: the Hudson and Delaware. Comparing the engineering of the Lehigh to the innovations of the D&H will provide us with insights pertaining to each canal. The D&H and Lehigh were rivals and provide us with differing business models. For example, the Lehigh smelted iron ore whilst the D&H never became involved in that line of business.

Lite refreshments will be served. A donation of $5 for Members and $7 for Non-Members is suggested.
