Visit Our Website

The I&M Canal Visitor Center presently has visitor information for sites throughout the national heritage area to help you plan your trip. Our map table is especially of interest to many. A story band and an 8 foot by 40 foot mural help tell the canal story. More exhibits are currently being planned for an unveiling for our 35th anniversary in late August 2019. Be sure to pick up brochures and visitor guides.

The Lock 16 Visitor Center offers a combination of history, and hospitality in an intimate and inviting space. Throughout the year the visitor centers offers “closed to the public events” such as wedding receptions with a dining capacity for 100 guests. Personal decorations, wedding planners, music, & photographers are welcome. We offer a variety of meal options that can be customized to fit your event.
