In 1860, 244,273 tons of goods were transported along the James River and Kanawha canal.

Visible from this spot is one of two locks that remain from Richmond's original canals. It was the last in a series of five stone locks that ran from the Great Basin to the river. In the canal's peak years, barges operating day and night moved through these locks on their way up or down the river.
