Why not join The Canal Society Of Ohio?

The society was formed in 1961 as a non-profit organization for the purpose of preserving Ohio canal history and to increase interest in our canal heritage.

The society conducts two field trips annually, Spring and Fall. These guided tours to various sections of the state interpret the construction and operation of the canal system as well as other related sites of historical significance.

Throughout the year, members present slide programs telling the story of the Ohio canals to interested groups.

A Newsletter providing current information about the canals and society events and TOWPATHS, an illustrated quarterly of historical canal information are published by the society and distributed to its members.

In addition, the society maintains canal history collections containing books, maps, photographs and memorabilia for reference and study in the archival libraries of the University of Akron and Wright State University. Donations of canal material of historical value are invited.
