All aboard Georgetown’s new C&O Canal boat! Join W&M alumni, parents, family and friends for a one-hour guided historical tour of the first mile of the Canal. Learn about the fascinating history, technology and culture of the C&O Canal, and the surprising stories of the people who lived, worked and played here over the past two centuries. The 80-foot Heritage is a new, historic replica of an 1880s boat that was used for daily transportation of coal, lumber and agricultural products along the C&O Canal.
