The State of NY announced their grants yesterday and I am proud to report that the Canal Museum is the recipient of a substantial grant, with Open Space Institute as a 50% partner, to acquire the historic 1797 Depuy Canal House (pictured here) as a future home for the Museum. Three years of hard work by the many talented and dedicated volunteer trustees has come to fruition! Hopefully we can move in in time for our 50th anniversary in 2016. Thanks to Open Space Institute and John Novi for their help in achieving this vision.
