   The two story Blackwells Mills Canal House, constructed circa 1834, was built for the bridge tender and his family. The bridge tender’s job required constant supervision of passing barges on the Canal, raising the bridge to allow for the passage of boats. The Blackwells Mills Canal House Association maintains the original integrity of the house, displaying furniture and other items of the mid-19th century.
