Brine, Boats, & Bureaucrats Exhibit Gallery Talk with Dennis Connors
November 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In his last presentation as OHA Curator of History, Dennis Connors will lead a gallery talk on OHA’s exhibit, Brine, Boats & Bureaucrats: Syracuse Salt & New York’s 19th Century Canals.
The relationship between Syracuse and the Erie Canal is well-known, as it is in numerous communities across the state, from Albany, to Lockport, Rochester, Utica and Albany. But the unique story of Syracuse’s salt industry and its vital bond to the canal is much less appreciated. Dennis Connors will talk about the exhibit and elaborate on salt’s relationship to the canal.
Meet in the main lobby of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown for this event.
This event is free and open to the public.
