: Canal plat map showing a section of the Hocking Canal through Fairfield and Hocking Counties, between stations 878 and 990. The Hocking River is pictured, and 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.
