HANCOCK - It was an historic day Saturday in this small river town as the first C&O Canal wayside exhibit in Washington County was officially dedicated.
"When we are all finished, we hope to have 50 to 75 of these exhibits along the entire 184-mile length of the C&O Canal,'' said U.S. Park Service Ranger Sherilyn Seyler.
And about 25 of those will be in Washington County, she said.
The exhibit, which consists of maps and historic pictures, was developed through a partnership with the park service, the C&O Canal Association and the Hancock Historical Society.
