Anne E. McCaffrey
Mayor, City of Lockport
Lockport is a 21st century city with its roots in the early 1800s. Just stand on “The Big Bridge” in the heart of town and you’ll see why-the Erie Canal! Lockport literally rose from the banks of this engineering marvel, enjoying industrial growth and prosperity. Today, we welcome visitors to this historic waterway and other attractions with the same hospitality as in the days of the packet boats and “canawlers.”
Lockport’s business community is diverse and prosperous. There are more than 50 manufacturing firms in Lockport and over 850 retail and commercial establishments in the town and city of Lockport combined.
Main Street in our City is currently being renovated. Historic-type light fixtures, courtyards, and building facelifts are being planned. Our Town continues to bring in new businesses and restaurants to service our community, while planning carefully to keep the green spaces that we enjoy.
