Early Oriskany: A Walk Through the Village in 1834

On Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 7:00 pm, the Oriskany Museum will host a presentation by historian Bob Moore and museum curator Alexis Albright about the village of Oriskany during the early nineteenth century, when the Erie Canal was new and the American Revolution was a not-so-distant memory. This program is free and open to the public.


The presentation will center around Moore’s 3-D computer model of the village, which is based on an 1834 survey map of the village completed for the enlargement of the Erie Canal. The map, preserved in the New York State Archives, holds important keys to understanding the village in the early industrial era. 


Albright will expand on some of the research, rare documents, and collaborations which have allowed her and Moore to explore and bring to life this scarcely documented era of Oriskany history. 


The Oriskany Museum is located at 420 Utica Street in the Village of Oriskany just off State Route 69 between the cities of Utica and Rome. The museum collection focuses on the Battle of Oriskany, the Village of Oriskany, and the USS Oriskany CV/CVA-34. The museum is currently open Wednesdays from 2:00-7:00 pm, Thursdays from 5:30-7:30 pm, and Saturdays from 12:00-4:00 pm.
