C&O Canal – Little Orleans


TransparentSign141On November 20, 2012 the WooFDriver and the PAK went on a Mushing adventure on the C&O Canal Towpath in the area of Little Orleans at milepost 141. It is believed that Little Orleans is the second oldest town in the area and that the name came from a French fur trader whose hometown was Orleans, France. A riot started here during construction of the canal in 1848 when the Irish workers went on strike and the canal company brought in German workers.
