Lockhouse 28 evokes the canal of the 1830s as construction came to a halt while the B&O Railroad and the C&O Canal fought for the right-of-way at Point of Rocks.
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. Six lockhouses have been painstakingly rehabilitated and furnished to evoke different eras in the canal’s history.
