updated listing Aqueduct Park
* <see name="Four corners, four steeples" alt="" address="Main St at Church St/Canandaigua St" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Hey, when you're in a small town, sometimes the most trivial things can become tourist attractions. There's one church on each corner of this intersection, and the village claims that no place else in the country can boast the same. The 1832 Western Presbyterian Church, 1867 First United Methodist Church, 1870 First Baptist Church, and 1873 Zion Episcopal Church aren't connected in any other way, and there's no tour or admission fee that lets you explore them all. But the sight is a popular one for photographers, if nothing else.</see>
* <see name="Aqueduct Park" alt="" address="" directions="Rt 31 east west to village line" phone="" emailurl="" hours="" price="" faxlat="" urllong="" hoursemail="" pricefax="">So named due to the still-standing aqueduct that carried the original Erie Canal&mdash;Clinton's Ditch&mdash;over "Mud Creek" (part of Ganargua Creek), Aqueduct Park is a treasure trove for Canal buffs. For starters, the aqueduct itself is quite a sight. Modern Lock 29 is also here, for those who like to watch boats lock up and down. There's a man-made waterfall where the modern canal spills over into the creek. Also here is the historic Aldrich Change Bridge; though it no longer crosses the canal, it was originally built when the original canal was widened in 1840 (the widened canal allowed no room for the south-bank towpath through the village of Palmyra, so the bridge was needed for the mules to change sides).</see>
* <see name="Swift's Landing" alt="" address="4100 Hogback Hill Rd" directions="Rt 31 east to Galloway Rd, north across the canal" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Swift's Landing on Ganargua Creek is where John Swift started settlement of the town; today it's a quiet 17-acre park that sits between the Creek and the Canal.</see>
* <see name="Historic Palmyra Museum Complex" alt="" address="132 Market St" directions="" phone="+1 315 [email protected]" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="Single museum: Adults $3, Ages 12-17 and seniors $2; Trail Ticket (all four museums): $7 and $5. Children under 12 free with adult">The complex encompasses four separate museums, each presenting a different aspect of life in old Palmyra.</see>
