Lower Pee Pee Lock
Description: This image shows the Lower Pee Pee Lock in Waverly, Pike County, Ohio. The Ohio-Erie Canal, the most important development in the county's early years, was started July 4, 1825, near Newark. The canal passed through Waverly along US 23 and portions of it can still be seen in Waverly today. Only four feet deep and bordered by tow paths with eight feet clearance, the 309 mile canal was completed in 1833 at a cost of more than $7 million. View on Ohio Memory.
