A vital link in South Carolina's internal improvements program of the 1820's, the canal stands as a monument to the following men who typified the South Carolina spirit during this first great era of public works building:

William R. Davie, distinguished general, lawyer, educator, and statesman, who dreamed of the canal and donated the land for it.

Robert Leckie, engineer and master stonemason, who designed the canal and supervised its building.

Robert Mills, Joel Poinsett, and Abram Blanding, who were planners and builders for the South Carolina Board of Public Works during this significant period of state growth.
