Canajoharie is located on Erie Canal about halfway between Waterford and Three Rivers. It is a small village that offers numerous resources, both on the northern and southern side of the canal. There is a canal wall that provides numerous amenities and it is just a short walk to town.

In town there is a pedestal traffic light that is quite different than any traffic light that you probably have ever seen. Its not suspended above the intersecting like most lights, its not even place on the side of the intersections like many cities currently employ to keep the "sky" clean. Rather this traffic light is situated in the middle of the intersection, and causes unfamiliar drivers to look twice before entering the intersection.

Places in town that may be of interest:

  • Picture Perfect Art Gallery
  • Library
  • Arkell Museum
  • Farmer's Market (Located in Arkell Museum parking lot)
