The popular song “Fifteen Miles on the Erie Canal” was written in 1905 by Thomas S. Allen after Erie Canal barge traffic was converted from mule power to engine power, raising the speed of traffic above fifteen miles per day. The song memorializes the years from 1825 to 1880 when the mule barges made boomtowns out of Utica, Rome, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo, and transformed New York into the Empire State. The song was illustrated in 1970 by Peter Spier and his book is displayed as a border in the Erie Canal Room.
