MERRICKVILLE LOCKSTATION The Merrickville lockstation is located within one of the oldest settlements in the Rideau Corridor. The town of Merrickville was founded in 1794 by William Merrick. Merrick was attracted to the site by the water power potential. He constructed a dam across the river and then built grist, saw and carding mills. It was not long before a community sprang up around the milling activity. Lockstation services: barbecues, parking, charts and permit sales, on-site identification, landscaped grounds and picnic area. Guided tours are available for groups. Visit the Merrickville Blockhouse. Swimming, fishing and boat watching are some of the activities to be enjoyed here.
