Early river dams were wooden

September 28, 2013
The Marietta Times

For over two hundred years people have been building dams on the Muskingum River. Later more substantial dams with locks and canals were added. There will be three articles covering these marvelous engineering achievements. The first part discusses privately built dams during the early 1800's and the state sponsored improvements during the late 1830's and early 1840's. The second part will continue the discussion to about 1890. The last part will trace river improvements to the present.
