The canal had a huge impact on the surrounding villages of Macedon, Palmyra, Newark, Lyons and Clyde. The canal provided inexpensive and easy transportation of goods, which allowed agriculture and industry to develop. Local museums depict the “Era of the Erie” in many exhibits and remnants of the old canal are plentiful throughout the county. The canal takes center stage at numerous community events throughout the year. Today, the Erie Canal provides recreation for the whole family. Whether you’d care to fish, boat, canoe, kayak, hike or bike, Wayne County’s 35 miles of canal are waiting for you. Modern facilities such as marinas, hiking/biking paths, and canalside parks will make your experience a pleasant one.
