My poster "Bateau Passage and Water Power, Roanoke Navigation Co., Danville VA" [H27] features a map of Danville showing the 3,200 foot long canal with 4 locks, which was completed in 1824. Several old maps are pictured on the poster, including an early map of Winns (Wynnes) Falls prior to 1793; a map prior to 1824 when the millrace was converted to a canal for bateau; an 1854 map showing the Toll Bridge, the Basin and 3 of the 4 locks (each 90 feet long); a 1877 map of the Free bridge and canal; a drawing of the old mill near the locks. The canal system here in Danville Virginia extended the navigation from the Atlantic Ocean in the area of Roanoke Island/Nags Head, North Carolina up Dan River another 65 miles to Danbury North Carolina. Much, much more information about the area of Danville. Waterpower from the canal provided electricity for what was the first municipal electric company in the United States.

This poster measures 22-1/2 inches x 17-1/2 inches. Our larger posters are shipped in a sturdy USPS PRIORITY MAIL tube for their protection. We are now using the new Etsy Calculated Shipping for our posters.

Since the 1970s, I've been designing history posters based on my research. Most of the information is from various public documents and records from the Pittsylvania County Courthouse in Chatham, Virginia. This county was established in 1767, but some documents I use pre-date that.

I have many posters about the Danville, Virginia and Pittsylvania County area in the History Posters section of my shop. A few of these are --
