The Champlain Canal at Comstock

The Champlain canal parallels Wood Creek in Washington County.  North of Comstock,  ancestors in the Mylott family farmed lands along Wood Creek and made a decent livelihood due to their proximity to the canal lanes.
maps of the old canal contrast with the photos of the present day canal and the locks at Comstock
