Event description

Description

Many of us know the story of the Irish laborers on the Erie Canal, but, as our current exhibit tells, the Irish story does not end there. Join the Museum as we explore the life and fantastic work of David Vaughan. Retired New York State Museum curator, Craig Williams, will present 19th century draftsman David Vaughan and the significant maps and observations he made on New York's Erie Canal. Surveyor, draftsman, and mapmaker David Vaughan, who came from Ireland to Albany in 1847, brought mid-nineteenth century New York alive through his skilled and artistic maps and documents.
