Junior Member Program: Working on the Ohio-Erie Canal

July 26, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Ross County Historical Society invites children ages 6 to 12 to join us for our 2023 Summer Junior Member Program “Working on the Ohio & Erie Canal.”

Step back in time to the days of Ohio’s first super highway—the Ohio & Erie Canal.

Children ages six to twelve are invited to participate in our 2023 Summer Junior Member Program where they will experience what life was like during Ohio’s canal era of the early 19th century. We will discover how the canal was built and who built it, plus learn the skills of a canal boat captain, a canal boat builder, and a teamster who drove the horses and mules that pulled the boats along the canal. We will also tour the canal exhibit inside the museum. When our “work” is done, everyone will have an opportunity to participate in popular outdoor children’s games from the period.

Refreshments will be provided!
