Map of the location of Lock 13

      Not much is known about Lock 13.  If it was constructed like other locks on the canal, it was probably 110 feet long by 18 feet wide.   The walls were likely made of limestone. The gates were likely timber.    Sources state that the lift was 6.4 feet.  The lock was located in the Utica area near the Blackball limestone mines.
