Barrons Store

Mile 76.7 - Ice cream cones 75 cents?  That's what the sign at Snyder's landing says and the arrow is pointing this way, to Barron's C&O Canal Hiker Biker Store.  This is a must-visit!  Besides having lots of cool liquid refreshments, there's a C&O Canal museum with many historic pictures of sights along the canal.  These were donated by the people from Sharpsburg that run the canal.  The canal headquarters is still at the foot of the James Rumsey bridge.  Open year round!

How's business?  Well, it can always be better!  You may notice in the foreground a pile of books about the canal.  These books are not available in the NPS book stores.  You can also buy some historical photographs at seventy-five cents each.  Hmmm, the same price as an ice cream cone....
