Governor Cuomo is announcing that 28 sites across New York State have been nominated to the State National Registers of Historic Places.

The Barge Canal Historic District was one of the properties advanced for the historic designation by the state board of historic preservation.

The Barge Canal Historic District includes the four historic branches of the state's 20th century canal system including the Erie, Champlain, Oswego and Cayuga-Senaca Canals.

A link to individual nominations and photos of each site can be found at the New York State Parks website.
