In 1793, the first canal in the United States was built in Massachusetts, on the Connecticut River. It is likely that the Erie Canal in New York, completed in 1825, was the inspiration for Guilford's making a patent on his method of preserving canal timber. The success of the Erie Canal—which connected Buffalo with Albany, and to open up the West for commerce and expansion—led to a great burst of canal building in the country. The first major canal built after Guilford's patent was the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, began in 1828 (with construction interrupted in 1837 by the business depression), with about 100 miles of westward waterway completed.
