OHIO'S FIRST SUPER HIGHWAY - 1825 TO 1913 - THE 300-MILE, HAND-DUG DITCH CALLED
"THE OHIO-ERIE CANAL"

Canton is the little known chapter in that canal history  . . . . when in 1835 little Canton, Ohio (pop. 1,200) started to dig a feeder-canal down the middle of Walnut Avenue (renamed Canal Street for a period of time) that would ultimately give Canton a commercial waterway connection all the way to the Lake Erie port city of Cleveland via the recently completed OHIO-ERIE CANAL that had bypassed Canton in favor of her rival town of Massillon. This remarkable construction of the 300-mile, hand-dug ditch stretched all the way from the Ohio River to Lake Erie, an early engineering feat that almost overnight lifted Stark County out the wilderness and into civilization.
