Lock 57 Closed For The Winter
Besides the legend about the 5 Nuns who were killed in an accident that decapitated them all on the bridge (not the new bridge, but one from a century ago) there seems to be a lot of activity around the aluminum boat dock they put in during the nicer months of the year. We have had some hair raising events sitting on that dock at night.
We will be continuing our investigations of the Lock area in the year of 2012 and hope to do some research into the history of the area. If you know any stories or facts about this part of the Sandy and Beaver Canal, please pass them on to me! I would love to put them on our web site and I will give you full credit for finding the tales! firstname.lastname@example.org
