"The confluence of the Potomac River and the Conococheague Creek has long been used for transportation –  firrst by American Indians and later by European settlers who moved into the area. In 1787, Revolutionary War hero General Otho Holland Williams founded Williams Port. Realizing that these two waterways created the ideal opportunity for commerce, Williams concentrated on promoting his town as a transportation hub. The arrival of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal in 1834 brought a period of prosperity and provided a new trade route between Cumberland and Georgetown. Commerce thrived here with two warehouses built along the canal, making Williamsport an important coal transfer point. Though Williamsport’s time as a transportation hub and industrial center has passed, the town continues to retain its character today as a classic canal town."  from Williamsport: Canal Walking Tour
