The Feeder Canal Alliance was created in 1987 to save and preserve the seven-mile Feeder Canal, the last remaining original canal in New York State and an integral part of the state’s 524 miles of canals, for future generations. This now-recognized National Historic Place creates recreational opportunities for visitors and locals alike while providing 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.
