Like Lock 10, Lock 11 also features a lockhouse. This lockhouse unlike the one at Lock 10 is an exhibit describing the drop gate lock and the life of the lock keeper and his family. Just beyond the lockhouse you will find an original mile marker that is shaped like a tombstone and inscribed "9 miles to W.C." (Washington City).
