THE HISTORIC WCC BOATHOUSE

Since it's founding in 1904, the Washington Canoe Club has played an important role in promoting the sport of Olympic Canoe and Kayak from our home base on the Potomac River - our historic boathouse that predates the Key Bridge!

We invite you to learn more about the history of the Washington Canoe Club and our boathouse restoration effort.
