​2023 fall trustee meeting & mini-tour chillicothe

CSO Trustees Business Meeting 11/4/2023

​The Canal Society of Ohio, Inc.


Saturday morning the group enjoyed coffee and donuts at the 19th century historical residence of fellow Trustee Tom Troester, then a walking tour of the canal path between two existing canal warehouses. Included was an inside look of both buildings with Trustee Kevin Coleman conducting the tour.

The Dard and Emmett Warehouses were the target of our investigations, and an excellent lunch was had along the way at the Bell Farms Restaurant between stops. At both locations Kevin and the property owners, Mr. Franklin Conaway and Mrs. Karissa Hunter, gave the group an overview of the history associated with the structures.

After the conclusion of the morning's tour we returned to the Troester residence for a tour of the home and conduct the CSO business meeting. Several photos below document the day and we very much appreciated the hospitality of both the warehouse property owners and Trustees Tom and Kevin in making it an interesting and informative experience for the group!
