Williamsport and the surrounding area has a fascinating history. Situated at the confluence of the Conocheaghe Creek and the Potomac River, Williamsport was first settled in 1740. Williamsport is the only place on the canal where examples of major canal structures can be viewed within a half-mile stretch. A half mile re-watered section of canal leads through the turning basin, under the only Railroad Lift Bridge as well as the only Bollman Iron Truss Bridge over the canal to Lockhouse 44 and the adjacent lock. The Conocheague aqueduct is located across from the turning basin.
Williamsport also offers a public boat ramp for recreational activities on the Potomac River. Click here to go to the Maryland DNR website for more info.
