The Second Annual Abolition Walk will shine a light on a pivotal moment in 1835 in the history of the abolitionist movement.
We’ll trace a portion of the footsteps of the 104 brave souls who escaped an angry mob of anti-abolitionists in Utica in 1835, embarked on an Erie Canal lumber barge to Canastota, and climbed the trail to Peterboro where they formed the New York State Anti-Slavery Society.
The Walk is from Canastota to Clockville and back (5.4 miles - 2 hrs).
