Port Middletown PlazaOhio's canal system was the most effective between 1827 and 1850, before the introduction of the railroads. In Middletown, the canal was still used well into the 20th century but in 1913 a devastating flood destroyed much of the canal. In 1929 water was drained from the canal and the canal bed was filled in, paved and dedicated in 1938 as Verity Parkway.
