Dedication ceremony to honor William Nelson Sweet

"It's significant because it was the one that started bringing an awful lot of people through Chazy," he said. "It was a main artery from New York to the rest of New England and from New England to New York and even Montreal."

Town Supervisor Staub G. Spiegel said he looks forward to the ceremony which will honor Sweet's ingenuity and the commitment of Chazy Friends of the Library, the group which helped fund the creation and installation of the marker.

"It is wonderful that we can share with the public this beautiful marker and to give recognition to an innovative resident, Mr. William Sweet and his crew, for making Chazy a part of U.S. history," said Spiegel.

The public ceremony will begin with a performance by the Strawhatters at 12:30 p.m.; the dedication will follow at 1 p.m. The ceremony will be located at the old ferry dock, located near 1736 Lake Shore Road, with a reception to follow at 1722 Lake Shore Road.
