Ohio & Erie Canal

Lock 26 – Pancake Lock


During the spring of 1828, a flood caused the Furnace Run Culvert to fail and the canal to silt.


Several canal boats ran aground and were stranded at this canal lock.


As supplies ran low, canal passengers and the crew ate pancakes to survive.


Lock 26 is right on the edge of Beaver Marsh, one of the haunted locations in the valley.
