The Administration BuildingAlthough the concept of a canal near Panama dates back to the early 16th century, the first attempt to construct a canal began in 1880 under French hhleadership. After this attempt failed and saw 20,000 workers die, the project of building a canal was attempted and completed by the United States in Panama in 1914, when the canal opened. The building of the 77 km (48 mi) canal was plagued by problems, including disease (particularly malaria and yellow fever) and landslides. As many as 27,500 workers are estimated to have died during construction of the canal.
