Coal train at Cushwa Warehouse

The Cushwa Warehouse was constructed circa 1800. By the late 1830s, the
warehouse's main commodity was coal which was sold in the local economy and
for transport down to Georgetown where there was a huge demand. The
building has seen multiple floods, recessions, and even Civil War battles
during its time along the canal.
