The Upper Hudson River, Champlain Canal, Lake George, Lake Champlain and Richelieu Valley create an interconnected waterway that provides an inland route for people and goods to travel. Before the age of the automobile, water travel provided the quickest, safest and most comfortable route through the dense wilderness, and even before Europeans arrived on the shore of this continent natives utilized the waterways. For centuries battles were fought for control of these superhighways. The natural geographical features of the waterway predestined history along the Lakes to Locks Passage.
