Significance: This limestone, three span, aqueduct was constructed to carry the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal over Antietam Creek. It is the fifth such structure along the route of the canal out of a total of eleven structures of this type. The aqueduct was completed and in use prior to 1834, as the canal was open to traffic to a point 17 miles above the Antietam Creek by that year.
