Erected August 16, 1975

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the completion of the original locks which opened a connecting waterway between the Hudson River and the Great Lakes. This completion of the Erie Canal was the opening of a door to the settling of the west. Tribute must be paid to the engineers of that age who surveyed and designed this project with antiquated instruments and little engineering experience. These men were the pioneers of American engineering.
