Highway of Commerce: The Blackstone Canal

October, 2003 - February, 2004 | Industrial Gallery

Highway of Commerce: The Blackstone Canal was presented as part of the Blackstone Valley cooridor-wide celebration of the 175th anniversary of the opening of the Blackstone Canal, the 45-mile waterway that linked Worcester to Providence RI. It was the first step in the transportation revolution that led to Worcester’s transformation from a landlocked agrarian outpost to a thriving center of commercial activity.
