Inscription.  
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 through to Lockington, where it joined the Miami and Erie Canal.
 
Erected by Shelby County Historical Society.
