Inscription
An aqueduct is a bridge carrying one body of water over another. The Duck Creek Aqueduct was originally built in 1843 to convey the canal over Duck Creek 16 feet below. Flood waters in 1847 destroyed the aqueduct, which was soon replaced by the present 70-foot, Burr arch truss structure.

The aqueduct is the only known covered wooden aqueduct still operating in the United States. In 1973 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in 1992 it was designated as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
