A-16 • Antietam Aqueduct | 1834
Just West of the Antietam Iron Works Bridge, on Canal Road

Both this and the Conococheague Aqueduct were built in 1834. The project cost many lives when a cholera epidemic swept the work camps of the immigrant Irish laborers, who built most of the canal, including its eleven aqueducts. Easy access and convenient parking gives a spectacular view across the Potomac. It also makes a good starting point for hikes along the canal or river. Once a year it is crossed by the many runners of the JFK Memorial 50-mile event.
