This remarkable canal era restoration includes the Isaac Ludwig Mill (US24 at SR 578)  the only operating mill remaining on the Ohio canals. Adjacent to the mill is a working lock through which a canal boat replica passes on a 1 1/2 mile segment of the canal. Directly across the river is the quaint canal era village of Grand Rapids with shops and restaurants. This is an outstanding site.
