Davis Building
The Davis Building was built in 1914 as part of the Davis Lock construction. In addition to housing the marine post office this building holds three of the 350 horsepower pumps that are used to dewater the locks for winter work. Visitors are welcome to tour this building during Engineers Day, an open house held annually on the last Friday in June.
