Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park

After being neglected for nearly a decade, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal received new life with the New Deal programs in the late 1930s. Two African American Civilian Conservation Corps camps were setup at nearby Cabin John and Carderock to restore the first 22 miles of the canal. With help from Public Works Administration workers and Historic American Building Survey architects, they rehabilitated this lock and lockhouse in one of the first federal historic preservation efforts.

The new deal programs largely ended in 1942, with the onset of World War II, However, their work set a precedent of preserving canal resources while developing recreational opportunities accessible to everyone. Without their hard work, this park would not be what it is today. Experience this legacy of stewardship by visiting Lockhouse 10.
