The McKean County Historical Society fall bus trip takes to the road 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 14 and seats are filling fast.
The trip will leave Olean, N.Y. and head to its first location in Lockport, N.Y. Once there, it’s anchors away, as the group sets out for a two-hour cruise along the Erie Canal for a historical tour of the original 1800s locks. The tour will be narrated and lively.
Following the cruise, passengers will have time for lunch before they board the bus and travel to the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park. At this stop, take time to learn more about four decommissioned Naval vessels: USS Little Rock, USS The Sullivans, USS Croaker and the PTF-17. Ships are only part of the park. There is also a monuments garden, museum, an outdoor exhibit yard and a maritime simulator. Read More
