May 23, 1976

Gas Port, formerly called James' Port, was the name suggested by George W. Clinton when he and a group of scientists came to this place on the canal where "considerable quantities of gas bubbled through thte water." On his return journey May 26, 1826 he noted the name Gas Port had been painted on the bridge. The picturesque name has clung through the years.
