Great Falls Park, MDChesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park Professional Review and Guide
"A public relations effort by Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas in 1954 saved the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and towpath from a different fate: The National Park Service had proposed paving the route as a scenic roadway on par with Skyline Drive. Instead, the towpath and canal are preserved, mostly in their original state."
