Public Landing Pioneer Village

In the 1830’s, the village of Lockport was platted by commissioners of the I and M Canal.   An area extending from 8th to 10th Street and Commerce Street and the canal was set aside as the Public Landing Area.   This was a busy area where wagons  with grain sold their product to waiting canal boats.    This area now is composed of a parking lot and a park.
