The Rondout Creek at this site provided the tidewater terminal for the D and H Canal, a constructed water-way of 108 miles, completed in 1828. Starting at Honesdale, Pennsylvania, hundreds of flat canal boats carried millions of tons of coal, timber and other materials towards the great metropolitan markets of the East Coast. Commerce along the Canal prospered until after the Civil War when growing competition from railroads caused a slow decline and final abandonment by the turn of the century.
