“George Washington’s Vision” not to be missed on Canal Walk

George Washington's VisionHave you ever taken a stroll down at the Canal Walk downtown? The 1.25 paved and landscaped path runs from Tredegar Iron Works to Shockoe Bottom and is full of historic locations and displays. One of the best is “George Washington’s Vision” at the Canal Walk Turning Basin in downtown Richmond.

The granite and bronze display is arranged in a circle and centered with a surveyor’s compass. The text and map within the display highlight the key points of the Kanawha Canal and Washington’s vision of connecting the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River.
