WILLIAMSPORT - Visitors to the C&O Canal have until Oct. 12 to see the special traveling canal exhibit housed at the Cushwa Basin Trolley Barn.
Building America's Canals, organized by the National Canal Museum, features tables where children can learn how to build a canal, construct an aqueduct, design and operate lift locks, build suspension bridges and operate cranes used to load and unload canal boats.
This marks the first time the entire Trolley Barn building has been open to the general public since it was built in 1895, according to National Park Service officials.
The interactive exhibit was brought to Williamsport with donations from local businesses and governments and efforts from the C&O Canal Trust, a nonprofit fundraising group created last year to help raise needed funds for the C&O Canal National Historical Park. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
