At this site on July 4, 1825, Governor DeWitt Clinton of New York turned the first shovelful of dirt for the Ohio Canal. The ceremony was attended by area citizens of Master Masons.

In the early 1840's James A. Garfield, who was to become the 20th President of the United States and a Master Mason, led tow horses on the canal.
