     To kick off Buffalo Maritime Center’s Summer Speaker Series tonight, Thursday, June 9th at 6PM, join the Buffalo Maritime Center’s Founder and Master Boatbuilder as they discuss the history and the significance of the Erie Canal Boat Seneca Chief. You’ll also hear about the progress as well plans for the future of this historic flagship that opened the Erie Canal in 1825.
     The BMC Speaker Series will take place on Thursdays beginning on June 9th at the Honda Tent at Canalside (on the Main Canal across from Explore & More). This event has a $10 entrance fee per person or $5 for BMC Members. Doors will open at 5PM and there will be a cash bar before and after the event. Be sure to get there early to get a great seat!

     Upcoming BMC Speaker Series Events at Canalside will Include:
  • July 14th: Buffalo's Fireboat, "Edward M. Cotter" by Ron Endle. Learn about the history of Buffalo’s “Edward M. Cotter,” the world’s oldest active fireboat since 1900.
  • July 28th: Buffalo Central Wharf by Mike Vogel. Before Canalside, this storied piece of waterfront was the historically important Western Terminus of the Erie Canal, but it was also know as "the very nostrils of hell." Join us to hear stories about "the infected district."
