The WooFDriver and PAK have Mushed the C&O Canal Towpath several times in the area of Great Falls at milepost 14.3, but the view never gets old! From 1785 to 1828 the Patowmack Canal Company constructed and operated here, but when the company went bankrupt in 1828, they turned over their assets to the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company. What is now the visitors center, the Great Falls Tavern hotel was built by the canal company and opened in 1831.
