Lock #52, at Grimms Bridge, sits on private property, though the owner didn't mind that we had a look. Full of water now, it adds to the beauty of this scene. Shaped differently than other locks I have seen, it has moss covered steps on the creek side, and when Dave and I were climbing them, we both made the remark that it was like walking up an Aztec Temple. Some other neighbors we talked to, The Schmidbauers, told us a few things about the area, including legend about a Blue Lady in the area. There were not any details to the story, only that a woman had died somehow in the area and now her ghost sometimes appears, casting a blue light. Sounds similiar to the Thompson Park Blue Lady Legend. I am eager to find out more details. Who was she? How did she die? Why is she called The Blue Lady?
I have read that there is an old bridge abuttment in the area. The odd shape of this lock leads me to wonder if it doubled as a bridge? If any one knows anything about it, please let me know.
