Program description: The Erie Canal, The Silicon Valley of 1825
Speaker: Martha Kendall
The construction of the Erie Canal, nicknamed “America’s First School of Engineering,” provided one of
the most dramatic examples of the can-do attitude and ingenuity that continue to define the American character.
Just as Silicon Valley start-ups push the envelope of our notions about what is possible, the Erie Canal overcame technological, financial, and political hurdles before it became known as the 8th Wonder of the World.
In her program, author Martha Kendall tells the inspiring story of the construction of the Erie Canal
and presents colorful images of the canal today.
