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.
