Sites in Glens Falls
Feeder Canal - Across from this historic canal is a hydro-electric power-plant
on the Hudson River at Glens Falls. The canal was created circa 1820 to feed water
into the Champlain Canal. During the early 19th Century the New York State Canal
System served a crucial portion of the state's economy. In Glens Falls, lime,
marble, lumber, and agricultural products were shipped from the docks at the base
of Canal Street.
Amherst Road - Located near this road is the location where Fort Amherst once
was. The fort is no longer extant, however portions of the wood foundations were
known as late as 1880. The fort constituted a block house marking the half-way
point on the road between Fort Ann and Fort William Henry at the head of Lake
George. This Fort system, erected by the British, was built to secure the northern
territories of the colony from incursions from the French during the French and
Indian War. A restored fort house complex is available for viewing in the nearby
town of Fort Ann.

Calvin Robbin's Blacksmith Shop.
