On Monday, August 22nd, the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area participated in a National Park Service “Virtual Park Circuit.” Park Service sites across the country used Facebook Live to create 5 minute videos with the theme of innovation.
The Ohio & Erie Canal helped spur innovation in the United States by connecting the East Coast to the Gulf of Mexico- helping transform our region from an agrarian to manufacturing economy.
Today, the Ohio & Erie Canal is still helping to build connections between communities. In Downtown Akron, the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail is being enhanced through the innovative iTowpath program.
