Historic School House, 221 E. Fourth St. Zoar, OH 44697 United States
November’s FREE speaker is Daniel Rice from the Ohio and Erie Canalway Coalition. Mr. Rice will speak about the Ohio and Erie Canal and its connection with Zoar. The Separatists helped to dig a seven-mile section of the canal and were able to repay their land debts with the money they earned. The canal continued to affect their daily lives even after its completion, as it brought a greater number of tourists and worldly ideas into the area. This presentation will begin at 1 p.m. in the Historic Zoar School House, located at 221 E. 4th St., Zoar, OH 44697. This program is made possible in part by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. https://historiczoarvillage.com/event/free-historic-zoar-speaker-series-9/
