The Delaware Canal served as an important coal transportation station in the late 1800s. While on a tour of this historic house, learn about the lives of the people who lived along the Canal, and about locks that raised & lowered cargo-carrying boats. See a working lock model & a gross artifact that’s a favorite among kids: a pair of teeth found along the Canal that dates back to 1870.
