We are located one-half mile from the C&O Canal, mile marker 73 and each year we get to meet hundreds of people from all over the world who are cycling or hiking through on the 184 miles of the Canal or just taking in a short section. The Canal is an important piece of American history used from the 1820's thru 1924 to access coal in the Allegheny Mountains. When the railroad industry and damaging floods closed the canal for the last time in 1924 it sat dormant until the 1970's when it became the C&O Canal Historical Park.
