Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.

The Chittenango Landing Historic Photograph collection represents a historical overview of Chittenango Landing and the surrounding areas that had significant importance to the canal boat industry in the middle section of the Erie Canal.
This collection consists of documents relating to politics, business, foreign affairs, and the family’s personal affairs, which not only offer a glimpse into nineteenth century rural life in New York State, but detail machine politics on a regional, state, and national level into the early twentieth century.
