Summary

Significance: The Ten Mile Run Culvert is an integral part of the Delaware & Raritan Canal's (hereafter D&R Canal) early nineteenth-century engineering design. The culvert's original construction remains largely intact and consists of three 130-foot-long stone masonry barrels that carry Ten Mile Run beneath the canal prism. Built between 1830 and 1834, the D&R Canal is an excellent example of early nineteenth-century American canal technology. In 1973, the D&R Canal, including Ten Mile Run Culvert, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
