What do our visitors say?

 Historic Roscoe Village Ohio - Living History Tour Blacksmith

“Great place to take your family!”   The kids loved the hands-on activities in the Visitor Center, and were eager to complete their "Bill of Lading" by visiting each of the demonstrations in the historic buildings...the broom maker, the printer, etc.  It's a wonderful way to teach kids some of the history of the canal system.
