What Lies Beneath The Streets Of Buffalo Is Creepy Yet Amazing

Buffalo is one of America’s oldest cities, and with that comes a whole lot of history – both good and bad. First, let’s talk about the good: Buffalo boasted some of the most booming industry. Case in point: the Erie Canal. Built towards the end of the Industrial Revolution, the Erie Canal was legendary for its time, spanning over 300 miles from Albany to Buffalo and providing shipping and settlement opportunities that did not exist before.

Wondering what the bad could possibly be? We’ll let you in on a not-so-secret thought: Really old things tend to attract (or keep) really old spirits. One example of a creepy – albeit amazing – artifact can be found 40 minutes from Buffalo underneath the Erie Canal at the Lockport Cave.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
