The Canal Society will use the funds to support an item-level inventory of 735 cubic feet of manuscripts, books, maps, photographs, artwork, and three-dimensional artifacts documenting the history of the Erie Canal. The materials will also be rehoused in archival folders and boxes for long-term preservation at the Erie Canal Museum, where the collections of both organizations support ongoing research and educational programming for the Erie Canal's Bicentennial (2017-2025). The project will be matched with $171,276 in non-federal share.
