Long Description:
Large ship's screw located at the entrance to the Mohawk Valley Travelers Center on I90 Westbound.

The propeller is of the type that once provided the thrust for the canal boats the moved barges up and down the nearby canal.

There is a much smaller propeller in the same area, typical of many that powered the smaller boats on the canal.
