Buffalo Maritime Center Replica of Gov Dewitt Clintons 1825 Erie Canal Packet Boat

Buffalo Maritime Center will construct an historically accurate replica of DeWitt Clinton’s 1825 Erie Canal packet boat. Building of the boat will take place at Buffalo’s Inner harbor where Clinton’s original “Seneca Chief� was built and will be on view for the public. Upon completion, the Maritime Center will partner with cultural organizations in villages, towns, and cities where the packet boat can play an inspiring role in helping other communities to identify their unique Erie Canal culture and history and will be central to a grand reenactment of Governor DeWitt Clinton’s opening voyage from Buffalo to New York City in 1825.
