One of two main canals into which flowed the vast network of smaller irrigation and drainage canals from Turnbull Hammock, through New Smyrna Colony indigo plantations and the rise of farms of Minorcan, Greek and Italian colonists.

Dug during the 1770's by the settlers and still in use today. It was covered in 1924 by the sidewalk on the north side of Canal Street from Myrtle Avenue to Riverside Drive.
