1. The Sandy and Beaver Canal Marker
Inscription. Planned in 1827 as an important trade route between Glasgow on the Ohio River, to the Ohio Canal at Bolivar, passed here. A basin and toll station were located nearby at Lodi, as well as Locks 19 and 20 and a canal dam. This segment of the Western Division was completed in 1845, and saw regular service between Hanover and Bolivar until 1853. The coming of the railroad and recurring floods caused its abandonment.
The stones supporting this marker are from Lock 19
 
Erected 1970 by The Carroll County Historical Society.
