On January 7, 1825, the D&H Canal Company was formed, and the stock offered for sale that day was oversubscribed within a few hours. The D&H Canal Company ultimately grew to become the first privately-owned million dollar industry in America. The D&H Canal went through High Falls. The village was first settled in 1676. With the coming of the canal in 1828 and the discovery of natural cement in the area, the village began to thrive. In 1850 the canal company, which had recently acquired most of the village, formed the village into streets and lots. The five High Falls locks (20-16) were designated a national historic site in 1969.
This is the only fully remaining lock tenders house in High Falls, NY, USA.
