D & H Canal Visitors Center

During the 19th century, the D& H Canal Co. built amusement parks on its lands. Amusement on the canal went from simple canal boat rides to a much more elaborate facility on its gravity railroad during the late 19th century at Farview, PA. When the canal company expanded into trolley networks in the early 20th century, amusement parks were established at the end of their trolley lines. Come to hear about the establishment of America’s amusement park industry during the turn of the turn of the century.
