Here was Moomaw's Landing, on the North River Canal. In May 1863 the packet Marshall passed here bearing the body of General Thomas J. ("Stonewall") Jackson to Lexington. Mrs. Robert E. Lee used the canal in 1865 to join her husband at Washington College (now Washington and Lee University) in Lexington.
