A CANAL TO THE FOX
A plan is being developed which
has every promise of being carried out, to connect Fox river with Green Lake by a canal.
The project is backed by Chicago parties who are interested in yachting. The scheme is to
conver[t] the Puckey Ann, a small creek running from the lake, into a canal large neough
to float the pleasure yachts. This would enable Chicago yachtsmen to bring their boats to
the lake by water, via the Fox river. The canal will cost about $50,000 and will have two
locks, one near the North-Western railway depot in Dartford and one at the outlet. It will
be twenty-fove or thirty feet wide and four feet deep.
