Buchanan Gauge Dock

Buchanan Canal Park – March 2019 update.

Unfortunately, excavating the JR&KC Gauge Dock in Buchanan has revealed the cut stones to have been mined long ago.   While this is a loss, there’s agreement on the Buchanan Town Board that time is right for a canal park in Buchanan.

Park features will first include an interpretive garden for the missing dock, and a protective shed for a trailer mounted batteau, with signage.    Being considered for a later time are silhouettes of a canal boat and mules.
