Welcome To The Lock! Ohio & Erie Canal’s Lock 39 (Part 2)
Welcome to the Lock!
These pictures are some of the over 200 pictures I took on my 1-mile round trip last Saturday. Who knows how many boat this glorious lock raised and lowered during her career. If this lock could talk, I am sure she would tell some interesting stories. Her original sandstones are now covered or replaced with concrete as a result of a 1995 preservation project.
A little farther south is a Waste Weir where excess water from the canal was drained into the Cuyahoga river.
Stop by tomorrow as we cross the finish line and step back into the 21st Century.
