Lock 12 Historic Area

Preserved Susquehanna and tidewater canal lock

Lock 12 is one of the most well-preserved locks of the old Susquehanna and Tidewater Canal, built between 1836 and 1839 for commerce between the greater Harrisburg area and the Chesapeake Bay.  Nearby, several hundred feet up Anderson’s Run, is a restored double lime kiln and the remains of a sawmill and its dam, pond, and millrace.

Lock 12 Historic Area is located along the Mason-Dixon Trail and great hikes can be found both north and south. Check out a suggested hike from Mason-Dixon Trail System.
