Horse-Drawn Canal Boat Rides

Set aboard the Monticello III and you’ll feel like you are actually gliding right into Ohio history! Relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the canal as it once was. Watch the hoggee lead the huge team of draft horses as they pull the canal boat gently along its way. As you listen to old canal tales from the captain describing 1800's life on the canal, you’ll feel like you actually have stepped back in time to the 1830's!

What Do Our Visitors Say?

Fascinating Historical Gem of Ohio. How wonderful that this little gem, Roscoe Village, has been lovingly restored. It is fascinating to learn about this part of Ohio's history. The canal used to run right along side Roscoe Village where Route 16 is now. All but one of the buildings is original to the site. Visiting was definitely a day well spent.
