 Bridges and Tunnels of Allegheny County and Pittsburgh, PA - PA Canal, Wilson, 1898   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
At a public meeting of the citizens of Pittsburg, held in January, 1827, a committee of three delegates, James Riddle, Henry Baldwin and Walter Forward, was appointed to represent the interests of Pittsburg at Harrisburg in regard to the location of the western section of the Pennsylvania Canal.
Early in 1827 the question of the western termination of the canal was seriously discussed by the citizens of Pittsburg and Allegheny, the latter insisting that to extend it through the former to Monongahela was an unnecessary and useless expense.
The act of the Legislature of Pennsylvania to assist the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal with a stock subscription of $1,000,000 was regarded with great favor by the citizens of this vicinity.
