Why was the Erie Canal built? How was it built? What happened to it once it was built? Where is it now? 

All these questions and more will be answered in this crash course on “Clinton’s Ditch.” 

The Erie Canal was a key factor in the development of the Oneida Community. It was an important resource for travel, shipping, and spreading their ideas far and wide.

Derrick Pratt, Director of Education & Public Programming at the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse will give special attention to the role of the canal in Oneida, NY and how the Oneida Community was shaped by and utilized the canal throughout its history. A native of Chittenango, NY, Derrick received a B.A in Social Studies Education from SUNY Cortland and a M.A. in Museum Studies from Syracuse University. Prior to his job at the Erie Canal Museum, Derrick served as Director of Programs at Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum for 3 years.
