Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park
—National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior —From its inception the vision of the C&O Canal has evolved, constantly finding ways to be relevant. Built in 1829, Lockhouse 6 stands a mile upstream from Little Falls, site of the canal's July 4th groundbreaking the previous year. Lockhouse 6 witnessed much of the canal's history, from the early phase of construction to the heyday of 500 boats loaded with coal passing by from Cumberland to Georgetown.
