This canal practically had its inception in 1813, when several enterprising and active citizens, residing in Seneca county, became solicitous for the incorporation of the "Seneca Lock Navigation Company," the aim of which was to establish a communication by water between Cayuga and Seneca lakes.
In the recent plans for remodeling the State’s waterways, the Cayuga and Seneca canal was not at first included, but, at the request of the inhabitants of that locality, the supply bill of 1905 (chapter 700) contained an appropriation of $4,000 for making surveys and plans for extending the improved route to Cayuga lake.
