prosperous economy of Chillicothe 

Chillicothe - canal sites

Emmitt Warehouse

The Ohio & Erie Canal enriched the prosperous economy of Chillicothe by providing access to markets for its mills and pork- packers. A hint of the vitality of the canal trade may be seen today by the number of canal- era buildings that front Water Street - the original course of the canal. These buildings have been nicely preserved and serve current commercial interests. Locks are present three miles south of the city on Three Locks Road.
