Attention Washington County Public School teachers! During the fall of 2013, Canal Classroom Corps teachers may be available to come to your classroom. Email our staff to make arrangements.
We hope to expand this program to other locations in the near future.

The Paw Paw Tunnel is 3,118 feet long and is lined with almost six million bricks. The 2/3 mile long tunnel saved the canal builders almost six miles of construction along the Paw Paw bends of the Potomac River. The project took twelve years to complete. The tunnel was only wide enough for single lane traffic.
