Because water was the most efficient way to transport goods, most early Ohio roads led to a navigable stream, such as the Great Miami River. Through the 1820s, much of Butler County's abundant agriculture output found its way to market on flatboats that traveled the Great Miami, Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans and other southern ports.
