Project “Save Lock One”, Port Dalhousie has always had it’s ups and downs. It’s fortune has been tied in the past to the success of the Welland ship canals. After the entrance to the 4th and current canal was moved many miles to the east in the 1930’s, Port suffered a slow decline as the shipbuilding & ship supply industry started to shift to other areas. Some of the old locks and wharfs were reclaimed and made into parkland, or were sold for private development.Port has had a few resurgences in the past 30 years. New shops & restaurants now occupy some of the old canal town buildings. This revitalization of Lock 1 of the Second Welland Canal will help ensure that the heritage of Port Dalhousie and it’s contribution the pre Confederation Canada will be protected and celebrated for years to come.
