B'ville: Lock 24 Rededication

Dignataries, Lock 24 employees and community members commemorate the 100th anniversary of the opening of Lock 24 last Wednesday. Baldwinsville's Lock was the first to open on the Barge Canal May 9, 1909. Photographer Marianne Miles recreated an historical photo that was published in the May 5 edition of the Baldwinsville Messenger during a dedication ceremony held May 12. NYS Canal Corporation Director Carmella Mantello (fifth from right in the photo) kicked off the celebration. Baldwinsville's "Barge into Baldwinsville" committee will host many events throughout this summer season to celebrate the anniversary. Stay tuned for events' details.
