Notes
Survey number HABS MD-208
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-95).
Building/structure dates: 1834 initial construction
Significance: The Lock Tender's House at Lock Number 37 is one of the best preserved of such structures built of brick along this portion of the canal. Others along the canal are of log, wood frame, or stone construction. These small houses, usually located adjacent to each of the locks, provided living quarters for the lock tender employee and his family. This particular house was probably built before 1834, as the canal was opened to a point twenty miles above Lock Number 37 by that year.
