Ohio Canal Plat Map Collection
Description: Canal plat map showing a section of the Hocking Canal through the outskirts of the city of Lancaster in Fairfield County, between stations 492 and 649. The Hocking River is pictured, and bridges, railroads, stations, locks, and other landmarks along the route are also noted. The map was created under the direction of the members of the Canal Commission of the state of Ohio and approved by the Chief Engineer of the Department of Public Works (variously referred to as the Board of Public Works and the Division of Public Works). Construction began on the Hocking Canal in 1831 and was completed in 1843, connecting Athens and Carroll and running roughly parallel in sections to the Hocking River. View on Ohio Memory.
