The Ohio Canals
Map showing the primary and feeder routes that made up the Ohio canal system.
Canal Fulton, Piqua area, and Roscoe all have canal restorations and canal boats offering rides to the public…
A note of caution: riding on a canal boat is not injurious to health, but it certainly is habit-forming! It used to be said that anyone who rode a canal boat on a moonlit night was canal-smitten for life!
This important section
of Ohio's canal system
carried water from
the Great Miami River
at Port Jefferson
Lockington, where it
joined the Miami
and Erie Canal.
Erected by Shelby County Historical Society.
