While this marker indicates the original canal bed was filled in, there is a "new" canal still in use that connects Seneca Lake with Seneca Falls and about 92 miles of other waterways. (For what it's worth, the falls at Seneca Falls no longer exist as falls, having been made navigable by a massive multi-stage lock.) (Submitted on October 7, 2012, by Yugoboy of Rochester, New York.)
