Founded in 2007, the C&O Canal Trust is the official non-profit partner of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park. Our mission is to work in partnership with the National Park Service to protect, restore, and promote the C&O Canal. The Trust engages communities and individuals to realize the Park’s historical, natural, and recreational potential.
About the Lockhouse Program:
The Canal Quarters Lockhouse program, managed by the C&O Canal Trust, provides guests the opportunity to step back in time and live like a lockkeeper for the night... or three! Each of the six historic lockhouses – with four in Montgomery County – are restored and furnished to reflect the time period in which they are built, and each location tells a different story about the development of the C&O Canal.
All six Canal Quarters lockhouses can sleep up 8 people. They have been used for romantic getaways (including some engagements and weddings!), family getaways and reunions, girls’ weekends, scout troop lodging, and a special place for parties, holidays, and celebrations. There is no parking fee and pets are not allowed. They book up fast, so be sure to reserve your date soon!
