James River Restored Canal Lock

Battery Creek Lock #7 is part of the nineteenth century James River and Kanawha Canal System that was the main artery of trade between Richmond and the western valleys. Built in 1849, the lock was restored in the mid 1960’s and has been a favorite site of history lovers ever since.
