The 77-mile long Black River Canal was an engineering marvel of the 19th century. Only 35 miles long, the canal had 109 locks. Abandoned entirely in the 1920s, the former canal path is replete with stone locks and other evidence of the man-made waterway, especially north of Utica along NYS Route 12. In Boonville, the Black River Canal Museum contains a full-scale replica of a canal boat on its grounds.
