Forgotten Tour #149: Gowanus Canal and the Old Stone House

August 24 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

They call it Lavender Lake but it’s so much more. Visit this Brooklyn waterway, created in the 1800s by Edwin Litchfield from a natural creek, and take a look at the fascinating structures that surround it such as 19th Century can and box factories, one-of-a-kind bridges, new creek side walkways, and the Old Stone House, a recreation of a Battle of Long Island redoubt where 400 Marylanders lost their lives so George Washington’s troops could fight another day.
