Mile 84.40 - This dam actually works.  You can see on the West Virginia side a little building which houses a still-working electric generator.  The current dam was built in 1906 (previous versions had suffered from flooding)

Although the gate is now missing, this winch house was used to raise and lower a gate for protection against floods. The gate fit across the canal directly beneath the winch house.
