The Miami and Erie Canal went from Toledo to Cincinnati, connecting the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. Now, the Providence Lock is the only original working lock in Ohio and folks can ride through it on a replica canal boat in Providence Metropark (Metroparks of the Toledo Area). This song tells of the canal's history.
