March 31, 2001 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Location: Decatur House In its early years, Washington DC was swamp land. What we now know as Constitution Avenue was once the location of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Extension, connecting the Potomac River to the Anacostia River. The Lockkeepers house at Constitution Avenue and 17th Street is the only remaining structure from this period of the Canal's history. Build around 1832, the C&O Canal Extension influenced the lives of those people living in the District of Columbia, including the residents of the Decatur House. Sheri J. Levinsky, Director of Education and Programs at the Decatur House will discuss the history of the Canal Extension then lead a walk to the Lockkeepers House.
