CSO Summer 2021 Mini-tour
The Canal Society of Ohio plans to hold its 2021 Summer Mini-tour in Beaver Creek State Park, where we funded restoration of a lock on the Sandy & Beaver Canal. The Sandy and Beaver Canal ran 73 miles from Bolivar, Ohio, to Glasgow, Pennsylvania. It was chartered in 1828 and completed in 1848, but ceased to operate in 1852 due to a dam break and maintenance problems.
