Steffey and Findlay and F. H. Darby ( more details)

near Lock 44 Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Both the Steffey and Findlay Company and the F. H. Darby and Sons Company were located on the berm side of the canal just upstream from Lock 44 around the turn of the 19th–20th centuries. They dealt in coal and grain, and as can be seen in this photo, a Western Maryland Railroad spur ran along the berm of the canal from the Cushwa Basin area to their location. The R. Paul Smith coal-fired generating station was built in 1923 on the land between the canal and the river.
