Course number : LIR132   ID : 20782    Section Number : 1
« back to classes page
The Monocacy Aqueduct is one of two major structures on the C&O Canal and one of the most remarkable 19th century canal aqueducts in the nation because of its size and use of masonry throughout. It's location at the mouth of the Monocacy River was for a long time a small community of that name, and the ruins of its important granary can still be seen. Just 3/4 of a mile downstream from the aqueduct is Lock 27, of special interest as the last built to the original lock design and one of 14 locks lengthened in the early 1880s to accommodate two boats at a time.
