My husband's Great, Great, Great (we think that's how far back he goes) Grandfather was one of the lead engineers on this project. It was cool to think that 185 years ago, he walked on this same land. Can you imagine a barge being pulled through this? This is Lock No. 5.
I think I'm going to have him print these out for me to hang. It's so peaceful.
If you live near there, seriously, go visit.
