Lock 31 - Weverton

Mile 58 - Casper W. Weaver attempted to establish an industrial area here and harness the power from the Potomac for manufacturing, much like had been done at Harpers Ferry.  His high rents failed to attract enough business and the town ultimately failed.

It was here I met a member of the C & O Bicycle Patrol.  They Live!  They're volunteers that ride around looking for trouble.  Sorta like Baywatch but these guys are on bikes.  I sure could have used them last week when I got a flat and had to walk my bike five miles!
