One of Richmond's early canals began as a millrace, built by David Ross in 1789.

When the Ross Mill was acquired by the Haxall family in 1809, the race became known as the Haxall Canal.

Before the American Revolution, Samuel Overton built a mill on rocks in the James River. In 1789, David Ross purchased this property and, to power his mill, dug a new waterway. This later became a canal that extended from 12th Street to headgates here at Tredegar Iron Works.
