When you really think about it, and aqueduct could be considered an oxymoron – it’s a bridge built over water to carry water. In this case, the Monocacy aqueduct was the largest of the eleven aqueducts built as part of the C&O canal system in the mid 1800’s. The Monacacy Aqueduct has survived the Civil War and hurricanes and is now part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park. You can easily visit this site and others along the C&O canal system from a base in Frederick,MD.
