Myth Busting in the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Area

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Ana Koval, President Canal Corridor Association

The Canal Corridor Association has spent years reading primary sources to uncover information about the I&M Canal. Learn more about the Canal’s history during it’s 175th anniversary year and find the answers to some burning questions like “Were the state boundaries moved because of the canal?”, “Was the canal replaced by the railroad or larger waterways?”, and “Did canal workers really get paid in whiskey?”.
