Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River

The building and operation of the 108-mile Delaware & Hudson Canal provided a multitude of jobs not only for Dutch and English settlers but for Irish and German immigrants. The area hummed with activity. Laborers dug the canal with picks and shovels, blasted rock with black powder, and cut and laid stone for locks and walls. Others tended locks, kept canal records, and cared for mules. Boatyards, blacksmith shops, gristmills, taverns, inns, and all kinds of stores soon appeared along the canal.
