C&O Canal Temporarily Closes Georgetown Visitor Center for Renovations

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park will temporarily close the Georgetown Visitor Center located at 1057 Thomas Jefferson Street, N.W., until about April 2006 due to renovations. When completed, the visitor center will include exhibit space on the ground and first floors, a handicapped accessible bathroom, and more sustainable utilities. A chair lift will provide mobility-impaired visitors access to the first floor from the ground floor. Park staff is working with contractors to design new exhibits for the facility.
