9am – 2pm
Did you know that the stained glass windows at 1st Presbyterian Church Lockport, were done by Tiffany? Or that they applied several layers of different colors of glass to get the right color? Did you know that the original Locks in Clinton’s Ditch, including the flight of 5 locks, were built in 1825; and the Barge canal was built next to them in 1905? Or that one man would push a large lever to move the original locks?
