SCHUYLKILL CANAL HOUSEBOAT

 

_IGP2473

This is Mildred, the once used Houseboat on the old Schuylkill Canal.  People that traveled the Canal sometimes lived in Houseboats such as this one.  Of course, it probably did not look quite this good back then.  It has been repaired and painted to look like it did so many years ago.

In the inside there is not much room.  Just enough for a bedroom, kitchen, and a very small living space.  Mildred sit’s overlooking what is left of the Canal she once traveled.  In the distance behind Mildred, spans the Red Covered Bridge.
