Lock & Lockhouse 71

Lock and Lockhouse 71

Lockhouse 71 is a 2 1/2 story frame structure at mile 167.04.  It’s easily accessed from the NPS parking lot at Oldtown, and is a mere .3 mile hike upstream from Lock 70.  The most noteworthy thing about Lock 71 is that it marks the beginning of the watered section of the canal that runs to the proximity of the Town Creek Aqueduct.  Originally, the lock was lined with treated wood, but that has long-since been replaced with concrete.
