Canal Town Museum is a former bakery and residence now housing a museum and located at Canastota in Madison County, New York. It was built about 1873 and is a small rectangular frame building surmounted by a low-pitched hipped roof. It is representative of the type of combined commercial / residential structures that once lined the canal basin in Canastota's central business district.[2]

  • In 2010, the award nominated "Title Town USA, Boxing in Upstate New York" by noted historian Mark Allen Baker was published by The History Press in 2010 and not only supports Canastota, New York as the center of Upstate New York's rich boxing heritage but also brings to life local folklore and history. The introduction was written by Edward P. Brophy Executive Director of the International Boxing Hall of Fame. The staff of the Canal Town Museum played an integral role in the publication.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
