VC&NS: Who We Are

About VC&NS

The Virginia Canals and Navigations Society’s web pages offer general information of value to its members and interested “canal buffs”.

The organization itself was formed in 1977 to preserve and enhance Virginia’s rich inland waterways heritage in all its fascinating aspects. History, exploration, archeology, modeling, local lore and legend, restoration, preservation, park and trail development – these are some of the many areas of interest our members pursue to their own great satisfaction and frequently to the lasting benefit of their communities and state.

The VC&NS is a 501 (c)3
Non Profit Organization.
