Peninsula is one of the more remarkable canal era towns. Nearly all of its history and commerce were related to the Ohio and Erie Canal and the historic architecture and canal artifacts of today reflect that fact.

The CVNRA has constructed a towpath trail through the village that encompasses a lock, an aqueduct carrying the canal over the river and a millrace. A short walk to the north brings you to a feeder lock where water from the Cuyahoga River supplied the canal. South of the village lies Deep Lock with its impressive twelve- foot lift 

The Peninsula Library contains an extensive collection of canal literature and offers a free walking tour guide of the canal era homes.
