Description: This photograph shows the Zoar grist mill that spanned the Ohio and Erie Canal near Zoar, Ohio, 1888. The mill was built in 1858 and operated by the Society of Separatists of Zoar until the dissolution of their communal economy in 1898.
Led by Joseph Bimeler in 1817, a group of Lutheran separatists left the area of Germany known as Wurttemberg and eventually established the small community of Zoar in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. They would become known as the Society of Separatists of Zoar in 1819. Louis Baus was a prominent photographer in Cleveland, Ohio, who began his career with studio work, but in 1911 became a staff writer for the "Cleveland Advocate, " a local newspaper that was later purchased by the "Cleveland Plain Dealer."

Abandoned canal boat in Montgomery County, OhioSave
Description: Probably produced in the 1910s, the original description for this photograph reads "Canal Scene Today." This photograph was included in a large group of photographs of the Miami and Erie Canal taken in Montgomery County, Ohio, but there is no other supporting documentation. Completed in 1845, the Miami and Erie Canal connected the Ohio River in Cincinnati and Lake Erie in Toledo.
This photograph is one of many visual materials collected for publication in the Ohio Guide. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Works Progress Administration by executive order to create jobs for the large numbers of unemployed laborers, as well as artists, musicians, actors, and writers. The Federal Arts Program, a sector of the Works Progress Administration, included the Federal Writers’ Project, one of the primary goals of which was to complete the America Guide series, a series of guidebooks for each state which included state history, art, architecture, music, literature, and points of interest to the major cities and tours throughout the state. Work on the Ohio Guide began in 1935 with the publication of several pamphlets and brochures. The Reorganization Act of 1939 consolidated the Works Progress Administration and other agencies into the Federal Works Administration, and the Federal Writers’ Project became the Federal Writers’ Project in Ohio. The final product was published in 1940 and went through several editions. The Ohio Guide Collection consists of 4,769 photographs collected for use in Ohio Guide and other publications of the Federal Writers’ Project in Ohio from 1935-1939.
