Canal History

The Historic Savannah-Ogeechee Barge Canal is one of the prime relics in the history of southern canals. Beginning with the tidal lock at the Savannah River, the waterway continues through four lift locks as it traverses 16 1/2 miles, before reaching another tidal lock at the Ogeechee River. Along the way, the canal passed thorugh Savannah's 19th Century industrial corridor, former rice fields, timber tracks, and a still lush tidal river swamp and adjacent sandhill environment that is the characteristic habitat for several unique species of flora and fauna.
