The Travels of Tug 44


Moses Kill Aqueduct - Old Champlain Canal
Fort Edward, NY




Seen across a swampy area of the Moses Kill creek are the remains of the Moses Kill Aqueduct. Built around 1862 as part of the "enlarged" version of the Champlain Canal. The southern end of the old aqueduct is completely overgrown with impassible honeysuckle. I'll have to see if there is a path in from the north side of the creek.

When the aqueduct was in use, there was a hamlet called Moses Kill near here, and the schoolteacher there was Susan B. Anthony in her younger days.
