The seven-mile Feeder Canal is the last remaining original canal in New York State and an integral part of the state’s 524 miles of canals. The Feeder Canal has provided water from the Hudson River to the Champlain Canal since the early 1800′s, supplying the original Champlain Canal then and the modern Champlain Canal portion of the New York Barge Canal today.
For approximately 100 years the Feeder Canal provided not only water but also a means of transportation by canal boats for people and goods. In 1928 it stopped functioning and was abandoned, quickly becoming overgrown and littered with trash. The Feeder Canal Alliance was created in 1987 to save and preserve the canal for future generations.
Thanks to the work of the Feeder Canal Alliance and the efforts of many people, organizations, corporations, and governmental agencies, the beautiful Feeder Canal and Towpath was saved. This now-recognized National Historic Place today affords recreational opportunities for visitors and provides a glimpse into the past.
The Feeder Canal Alliance is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving, promoting, maintaining, and protecting the beautiful and historic Feeder Canal and Towpath in Glens Falls, NY and nearby communities. We work in close cooperation with the New York State Canal Corporation and the New York State Office of Canals of the New York State Thruway Authority which supports the Feeder Canal Alliance in it’s plans for the canal’s future development and use. The Feeder Canal Alliance also relies heavily on volunteers. We hope YOU will become involved. Call the office at (518) 792-5363 to learn how you can help the Feeder Canal and Towpath.
