“Step back in time”
The extensive stair step canal lock walls, among the best preserved in Ohio, were part of the Miami and Erie Canal System, which opened for navigation in 1845 and connected Cincinnati and the Ohio River to Toledo and Lake Erie. For decades, the canal provided Ohio with valuable transportation and waterpower. The lockmaster's house, now a private residence, and a dry-dock basin for boat repair are still visible. While on your visit, take five lock steps down to Loramie Creek, where the abutments for the aqueduct remain.
No parking. You can just drive by and get a peek. No exploring. :(
