Notes
Survey number HAER GA-139
Building/structure dates: 1825 initial construction
Significance: The Savannah and Ogeechee Canal was the first barge canal built in Georgia. Built during the 'canal building' era of American transportation history it served to link two of Georgia's major rivers. Despite construction delays, failure to reach its intended terminus, and operational difficulties, the canal was the main conduit for moving agricultural goods from the interior to Georgia's coastal population centers and ports for three decades and continued to survive for many years despite competition from railroad systems. The canal was typical of nineteenth century engineering and portions retain their original characteristics.
