C&O Canal – Point of Rocks

By

TransparentSign48.2On December 7, 2012 the WooFDriver and his crew took the WooFPAK on a Mushing Tour of the C&O Canal at milepost 48.2 in the area of Point of Rocks. In 1828 the narrow passage between the rocks provoked a legal battle between the canal and railroad companies over who would have control of the narrow passage. Both the C&O Canal Company and the B&O Railroad compromised and a wall was built between the two so the trains would not scare the mules that pulled the canal boats.
