It's the story of a small port built along the Ohio & Erie Canal
It's the story of the way lives were enriched by the wonders of canal travel in this newly developing region
It's the story of the 1913 flood that wiped out the canal and left the village of Roscoe to suffer years of decline
And it's the story of caring entrepreneurs, historians, and townspeople who worked to restore this tiny town to a new life -- celebrating the past as Historic Roscoe Village
The story goes on today — 51 years since its restoration — in a village alive with fascinating historic tours, beautifully appointed buildings, annual festivals and events, and breathtaking gardens and pathways.
