Welcome to Augusta Canal

Explore the nation's only industrial power canal still in use for its original purpose. Built in 1845 to harness the water and power of the Savannah River, the Augusta Canal offers history, recreation and unique experiences along miles of towpath, trail and waterway.

Enjoy the Augusta Canal on foot, by bicycle, canoe or kayak. Fish from the banks, watch for wildlife. Or take one of several daily guided tours aboard a replica canal cargo boat.

Encounter the people who built the canal and learn about the progress, problems and promise of its century-and-a-half history at the Augusta Canal Discovery Center at Enterprise Mill.

Office & Interpretive Center located at 1450 Greene Street, Augusta, GA 30901 * 706-823-0440
