Event Type Historic Site Tour/History Description Come to the D&H Canal Museum in High Falls and take a free guided tour of the national historic landmark Five Lock Walk. See five restored locks from the final 1850 enlargement of the D&H Canal, the first million dollar private enterprise in US history. The Canal ran for 108 miles from Honesdale PA to Rondout NY to bring coal from Carbondale PA to NYC, running from 1828 through 1898. The Canal fueled the industrial revolution in America and helped make NYC the world's largest city. It informed the 19C history of all the towns along its route. Approximately 1/2 mile.
