      EVENT DETAILS
      OLLI at UVM World of Northern Canalers with Scott McLaughlin

      During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the life of a canal boat family was one of a curious blend of domestic and nomadic existence as they traveled the inland waterways of the Northeast, carrying cargoes ranging from live turkeys and eels to lumber and coal. Unlike seafaring men, the captains of canal boats from Lake Champlain found it advantageous to take their wives and children with them, despite the hardships. Come learn about these people and their boats, technologies, and cargoes, which were a critical part of the economic fabric of the Champlain Valley.
