Cozy up for the night at Lockhouse 49 and experience life as it may have been on the canal in the 1920s when the surrounding area was a thriving community known as Four Locks.
Canal Quarters offers an extraordinary interpretive opportunity for people of all ages. Now, for the first time ever, you can stay overnight in a lockhouse and experience life as it may have been during a bygone era on the C&O Canal. Four lockhouses have been painstakingly rehabilitated and furnished to evoke different eras in the canal’s history.
