The Erie Canal Village was an interesting stop on our great NYS history trip with our kids. Are there some buildings that are condemned, yes. Many buildings you can still go inside. For the ones that are condemned (you can't miss the signs on the buildings), you are still able to peek inside and see the period furnishings (except one). Remember- these buildings are 200 + years old AND your admission is not much. There is other period museum that is nicer (Genesee Country Village in Mumford), but its attached to a larger museum with MORE funding and the admission is MUCH more.
There was alot of good information about the history of the Erie Canal- from Clinton's Ditch to the Barge Canal.
Also at this stop is Fort Bull- a fort from the French and Indian War that was burned down. There is a monument to commemorate the fort and you can 'see' where the walls would of been.
