Let History Surround You
Walk through a 2100 foot water power tunnel blasted out of solid rock. The Hydraulic Tunnel provided water power to several industries.

This was an awesome tour, the kids and I really loved it. I never knew it existed. It’s worth the trip! A real must see when visiting Lockport, NY!!!
