To mitigate the increasing spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, we have closed the National Canal Museum and offices of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Our staff continues our mission-driven work from home. We hope you and yours will stay safe and healthy. Happy Trails!×
You may have read the article in The Morning Call about a Bethlehem Steel wall mural at Unity Bank that shows a high-pressure cylinder being bored inside Bethlehem Steel’s No. 2 machine shop. Yes, that high resolution digital photo on the mural is from the National Canal Museum Archives! Unity acquired the right to reproduce the high resolution digital photo, and they also made a donation to the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Thank you, Unity Bank!
Our historian/archivist Martha Capwell Fox recently shared with us a bit about our holdings of canal, anthracite, railroad, iron and steel, and other industrial records, including some pretty unique oddities as pictured here:
Access to the Archives is free for members–one of the great benefits of becoming a member of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Archival items like the high-res photo are available for license, too, but appointments are required to ensure your experience is the best it can be. Schedule your visit here.
