All aboard Georgetown’s new C&O Canal boat! Georgetown Heritage will give 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.
