Glens Falls Feeder Canal

Around 1822 the Feeder Canal was constructed to bring water to the Champlain Canal and ten years later widened to allow canal boat traffic.

Above pictured is the Five Combines lock as it exists today. An engineering feat of the day the locks were needed to accommodate the 55 ft. elevation.
