Things to Do

Register for a Tour of Abner Cloud House

The Abner Cloud House is one of the oldest existing structures on the Canal. In 1801 Abner Cloud, Jr., built a random rubble stone house with the help of Italian stonemasons, probably using stone from local quarries. 

The C&O Canal Trust is proud to partner with the Colonial Dames of America, Chapter III, who will be offering free 20-minute tours of the house as part of National Kids to Parks Day. Groups are limited to 5 people or one household per tour.

Some considerations:

  • Please be on time for your tour. If you are five minutes late, your spot may be given to someone else. 
  • If you need to cancel, please call (240) 202-2625 x 191 or email [email protected].
  • Facemasks are not required, but masks and hand sanitizer will be available for those who need them. 
  • This tour involves climbing two fairly tall flights of stairs. 

Thank you!
