Sunday, May 16 at 2:00 p.m. Cost: Free with museum admission; Free for members. Presented by Dan Reid, The Hennepin Canal, built in 1892 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was the first American canal built of concrete without stone cut facings. Some of the innovations pioneered on the Hennepin Canal were probably used on the Panama Canal. Both used concrete lock chambers and both used a Feeder canal from a man made lake to water the canals because both needed water to flow ‘uphill.’ (Description from Illinois DNR)
