Bench Program

Honor a loved one by sponsoring a C&O Canal Park Bench. You may be able to choose the location for a new park bench to be placed in a location that has special meaning to you and the person you are choosing to honor.*

Benches can be made in honor or in memory of an individual. To learn more about the benches already installed in the Park, please visit our Benches on the C&O Canal page.

Bench sponsorships are available for $3,000 for three-year periods.


*Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a bench for the enjoyment of visitors to the C&O Canal National Historical Park. The program is currently suspended while we clear an installation backlog. Please visit this page periodically to check its status.

For more information, please contact Patricia Barber at 301-745-8880 orĀ [email protected].
