That convenient walking path across a “bridge” may not be what you think. In fact, it is where water once flowed atop water; once a part of the waterway system that was the C&O Canalthe Conococheague aqueduct.

So, here, in the days past my ggg grandfather’s days as lead lockkeepeer, after he bought (1860) a canal boat (the G.P. Lloyd) of his own, did he make passage with full loads of coal, enroute to Georgetown, D.C. Then, after he made the delivery… hmmm, I wonder if they hauled other goods back to this part of Md.

Where to next?
