RESEARCH INTO THE LOCK 57 AREA BARES SOME FRUIT
There is a canal right beside it. It is Lock #55. There are 57 locks for the Sandy and Beaver Canal System, #55 is the last one you can see in the line. #56 and 57 are gone, though I have heard rumors that #57 is simply submerged under the creek waters, it having risen when the dams were built on the Ohio River.
There are a dozen other sights along Beaver Creek I have yet to see from an era long gone. I can't wait to show you what we find.
