Roscoe in Coshocton County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
400 Whitewoman Street North
Built in 1831, this “Old Warehouse” was used to store large quantities of grain, hides, wool and produce. There was a dry goods store on the upper level. Known as the “Mill Store” in the 1830's, this was the natural place for canal travelers to acquire those necessities needed to continue their trip. On a peak day, there would be several canal boats lined up along the canal at the rear of the warehouse to be unloaded. Today the building has been restored to provide the best in dining in an atmosphere reminiscent of the old canal days.
