Snyders Landing ( more details)

also known as Sharpsburg Landing Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The Snyder Coal and Grain warehouse, a mere 1.7 miles from downtown Sharpsburg, served customers in Sharpsburg and the surrounding area. The warehouse was washed away in the 1936 flood.

The wharf here was known as Sharpsburg Landing before it took on the name Snyders Landing. The footbridge was the first structure to be built here to allow Sharpsburg residents and canallers access to both sides of the canal. It was built high enough to allow boats to pass underneath.
