I really enjoyed seeing the interior of the pumphouse. I was impressed by the large desk at the entrance. They had nice displays and a good amount of placards to read and learn about the canal.

A great history tour of the building and operation of the C&D Canal. Worth the trip to stop by to see some nostalgia. Free to anyone.

A bit off the beaten path (we walked) but well worth the trip. A great review of the local construction of the canal. If you are a fan of engineering and or local history this is a really great spot!
