Nashville District tames Cumberland River with the ‘Old Locks’

 

Written by Leon Roberts
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District

U.S. Army Corps of EngineersNashville, TN – Using wood coffer dams, primitive hand tools, A-frames and even animals to haul in supplies and stone blocks on tracks from nearby rock quarries, Army engineers constructed 15 navigation locks in the late 1800s and early 1900s to tame the Cumberland River for steamboats moving people and commerce throughout the region a century ago.

In the mid-1880s Col. John Barlow led the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Chattanooga District, and Charles Locke headed up the Nashville sub office as assistant engineer. In 1887, they prepared designs for the first lock and dam on the Cumberland River to be constructed just below the Nashville Harbor.

A Derrick arrangement is in the pit during the construction of Lock 4 Oct. 26, 1894 on the Cumberland River in Tennessee. The lock and dam were constructed to establish a navigation channel. The lock and dam were replaced by today's modern system of dams. (USACE Photo)
