Take a Trip Back To America’s Age of Canals

Easton’s Hugh Moore Park is a picturesque extension of the City of Easton where America’s golden age of canals is on full display. With more than two miles of restored Lehigh Canal, a canal boat attraction unlike any other in Pennsylvania and the rest of the Northeast, and one of the country’s largest canal heritage museums, the 520-acre park nestled between the Lehigh Canal and Lehigh River is a throwback to the years when mules pulling canal boats on narrow towpaths was a common sight in much of the United States east of the Mississippi River.

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor interprets this fascinating period of American history in the park through tours of the National Canal Museum and rides on the 110-passenger Josiah White II canal boat (June-October).  Explore our fun, hands-on exhibits highlighting 19th century canal life and technology. Don’t miss our special exhibitions: Powering America:  Pennsylvania’s Anthracite Railroads (June 2-December 23, 2018) and Frank Wyso: The Coal Connection (November 10-December 23, 2018)
