With the creation of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park in 1971, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park Commission was established by federal law in 1971 (P.L. 91-664, sec. 6). The Commission advises the U.S. Secretary of the Interior on policy and other matters relating to the development and administration of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park. The Canal courses the Potomac River Valley for 184.5 miles from Washington, DC to Cumberland, Maryland.

The Commission's nineteen members are appointed by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior to five-year terms. Three are at-large members, one of whom is designated chair. The governors of Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia and the Mayor of the District of Columbia each recommend two members for appointment. The governing bodies of the four Maryland counties bordering the Canal also each recommend two members for appointment.

Authorizaton for the Commission extends to January 8, 2011.
