My Favorite Part of Town - Augusta Canal

I lived on a small island in New York City's East River for 20 years before relocating to Augusta. I am drawn to the water. The Augusta Canal is a significant historic resource in Augusta and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark by the United States Department of the Interior. It starts in Columbia County above the shoals or falls in the Savannah River where water is diverted by a dam into the man-made canal. Built originally in 1845, the canal brought water into the city for the purpose of generating hydropower, particularly for manufacturing cotton goods.
