Ohio and Erie Canal in Massillon, Ohio
Description: The Ohio and Erie Canal was constructed starting in the 1820s, continuing into the early 1830s. It connected towns like Massillon to the Cuyahoga River, making it more economical to transport goods for sale. It flourished until 1861, when the railroads destroyed the market. Many of the canals were damaged during the 1913 floods and never repaired. View on Ohio Memory.
