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?

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 [interpreters], 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.
