Marker refinished by KMT, and presented to the Berks County PA Parks Dept.  It will eventually be installed at the Allegheny Aqueduct park in Gibraltar PA.

.  The aqueduct was built in 1824 and is a remnant of the Schuylkill Canal, one of many such canals that crossed the state circa 1820-1855.  The aqueduct allowed the canal boats to cross over Allegheny Creek.
