Little Falls today

Little Falls today

If John Henry Hopkins were to repeat his trip through Little Falls today, this is what he would see. This photo, taken from roughly the same location where he made his sketch in 1825, shows the channel of the modern Erie Canal at left. The Mohawk River gorge, right, is obscured by brush, and the historic center of Little Falls can be seen on the river’s north bank. The only features that haven’t changed are the hills in the distance. (Steve Boerner)
