Map of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers

This map, published in Christian Schultz’s 1810 “Travelers on an Inland Voyage,” depicts the water routes developed by the Western Inland Lock Navigation Company. Though it failed to open a navigable route to Lake Ontario (upper left), the company did develop the Seneca River and other rivers further west to connect to the Finger Lakes region of central New York.
