Boonville Black River Canal Museum

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 12 and State Rt. 12D, near Boonville in Oneida County

The Boonville Black River Canal Museum is located in Boonville at the Junction of Main Street and Route 12 on the banks of the original canal.

For more than a half a century, the Black River Canal played a central role in the life of the North Country. Appreciating the rich historical legacy of the canal, a group of interested Boonville residents secured a charter from the New York State Board of Regents to construct a museum that will preserve, house, and display artifacts from the canal era. The museum grounds are located near the Main St. bridge in Boonville, NY. Three buildings are planned for the site: an exhibit hall, a small theater, and a gift shop. A full-scale replica of canal boat is located on the museum grounds, a recently restored original warehouse that will house some exhibits, and soon to be constructed building to hold artifacts, exhibits, and more.

The Boonville Black River Canal Museum is located on a site formerly occupied by the Titus Powers Iron Works, built circa 1850 near the Main Street Bridge.
