Encyclopedia > Santee Canal

The Santee Canal was one of the earliest canals built in the United States, being built to provide a direct water route between Charleston and Columbia, the new state capital by linking the Cooper River near Charleston, with the Santee River, which receives the Congaree River, where Columbia was established at the Fall line. The canal was chartered in 1785. Construction started in 1786 under the direction of Engineer Col. John Christian Senf. It opened in 1793 and ceased operation with the coming of the railroads about 1850. It was 22 mi (35 km) long.
