19th Century Transportation
in Ontario County
This age-old question motivated people in New York to develop and utilize transportation systems from footpaths, rivers and roads, to canals and railroads. In the 19th century, these systems moved settlers and travelers, raw materials, agricultural and manufactured products from farms and villages to cities across the region and country. Transportation links helped create regional economies, and impacted land use and development. In this exhibit we will look at how modes of transportation contributed to the development of the Ontario County region from 1790 to 1900.
