Canal Cash

Most people know about the Ohio & Erie Canalway thanks to the 110-mile Towpath Trail that winds south from downtown Cleveland. But the association that oversees our National Heritage Area recently handed out a boatload of money — $600,000 — to organizations working to preserve the history of the pioneer-days waterway as much as our enjoyment of it. Here’s who got what and how it’ll be used:

A $60,000 : West Creek Preservation Committee for the West Creek Greenway to
Hemlock Creek connection
B $50,000 : Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association for
the rehabilitation of the
Stanford House
C $8,200 : Peninsula Valley
Historic & Education Foundation for historic preservation
through the Preserving
Peninsula’s Past project
D $25,000 : Barberton
Historical Society for trail development through the
Anna Dean Farms
E $9,333 : City of Canal Fulton
for a conceptual Historic Downtown Revitalization plan
F $62,500 : Great
Lakes Science Center for
the exhibit planning of
The Great Lakes Story
G $40,000 : Western Reserve Historical Society

H $75,000 : Trust
