Repairs to the Conococheague Aqueduct ( more details)


Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



Repairs being carried out on the wall of the Conococheague Aqueduct. The berm side of the aqueduct was damaged in a 1920 accident in which Canal Boat No. 73 hit the wall and went through, landing in the creek with no loss of life but bringing the rest of the wall down with it. Instead of going to the expense of repairing so much stonework, the canal company built a wooden trough to carry boats.
