Description: Original description reads: "The old canal at Third St. Bridge, Dayton, Ohio." The Miami and Erie Canal was one of Ohio's most important canals during the mid nineteenth century. Connecting the Ohio River in Cincinnati with Lake Erie in Toledo, the canal was built between 1825 to 1845. By its completion in 1845, the Miami and Erie Canal was soon to have competition from the expanding railway system. View on Ohio Memory.
