Discover Roscoe Village

Roscoe Village transports you back to a time when the Ohio and Erie Canal was bustling with Canal boats. Visit the restored 1830's Canal town and follow in the footsteps of living history, stroll through the gardens, tour the museums and exhibits and experience a horse-drawn canal boat ride on a section of the Ohio Erie Canal.

Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, festivals and special events mark the seasons. Autumn is a time for harvesting crops and communities in celebration. The Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival is the longest-running tradition at Roscoe Village. In late October, artisans and food vendors converge on and along North Whitewoman Street and the scent of apple butter wafts from steaming kettles through crisp air.

Roscoe Village Experience

Roscoe Village is an idyllic painting come to life. Renowned illustrator and muralist Dean Cornwell vibrantly captured life on the banks of the Ohio and Erie Canal in a 24-by-8 foot mural to commemorate the sesquicentennial celebration of the founding of Coshocton.

"Charming village creates educational and entertaining full-day excursion"

Roscoe Village takes you right back in time with cobblestone sidewalks and a number of period buildings, which you can tour after paying a small admission. The living history tour includes costumed actors, which guide you through fully restored rooms. The tour can easily take up an entire morning and afternoon. While it is a great excursion for school-age children, I found it to be entertaining and educational for adults as well. I also learned a lot about the history of trade canals and their operation in Ohio after viewing a short film at the information center and a riding in the horse-drawn canal boat.
