The Erie Canal: Celebrating 200 Years of a National Landmark
This year is the 200th anniversary of the groundbreaking of the Erie Canal. The Office of the State Comptroller played a key role in overseeing the funds for the building of the Erie Canal, which took eight years to complete initially at a cost of $7 million, an enormous undertaking at the time. Starting in 1817, the State Comptroller served on the Canal’s Board of Commissioners, which was responsible for transacting all canal business; later, the duty of auditing the Canal’s accounts was assigned to the Comptroller’s office. The Canal contributed to the rise of New York City as a global financial capital and energized the state's economy.
