Scenic Scioto Heritage Trail

— Ohio Byway —

Lock 48 is part of the extensive Ohio & Erie Canal that was constructed between 1825 and 1847. The canal provided a water route between the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico and gave a reliable form of transporation for Ohio's agricultural product's [sic] and natural resources. After 1855 the railroads began to impact the canal and in 1913 the canal system came to an abrupt end. However, the Ohio & Erie Canal played an important role in the United States economy at a time when our country was establishing iteslf as a new nation.
