ECALT - Fultonville
Part of the Erie Canal Adventure Lab Trail. Fultonville, on the south side of the Mohawk River across from Fonda, was settled by John Evart Van Epps in 1750. It’s named after the inventor of the steamship, Robert Fulton. Fultonville came into prominence when the Erie Canal was completed in 1825 and was an important port on the canal. As the canal traffic moved to rails and then roads, much of Futonville’s business died off. When the NYS Thruway was built through the town’s business section in the early 1950s it changed the town forever. This Adventure Lab will take you to several locations in Fultonville. It may be done in any order.
