Edwards Ferry Lockhouse is located at lock 25 along the C&O canal and is adjacent to the Potomac River. The house was completed in 1830. The lockhouse was home for the lock master who controlled the canal lock. The C&O Canal had 75 locks. The boatmen along the Potomac River called Edwards Ferry "Haunted House Bend". They reported hearing strange noises, including blood-curdling screams and moans. They'd say mules passing through became restless and spooked.
