The Miami and Erie Canal
———— · ————
Over this site once flowed the Miami and
Erie Canal, linking the Ohio River with the
Maumee and Lake Erie. The canal was opened
in 1827 and was finally drained in 1920.
For decades it served as a vital artery of
midwestern commerce. Before the coming
of the railroads, the canalboats carried
thousands of immigrants into southwestern
Ohio. For almost a century the canal was a
familiar, and remains a fondly remembered,
feature of life in Cincinnati.
