Information on everything related to the historical intersection of the Greenville Treaty Line, Ohio-Erie Canal, Towpath Trail, Ohio & Erie Canalway Scenic Byway, the Buckeye Trail, Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad, Western Union telegraph, and events within a reasonable hiking or biking distance from our corner of the towpath trail.
Our Peace Park Rest Area idea came about from my brother Marc sending me a picture of a really nice single table shelter that is on the towpath trail in Cuyahoga Valley in the Boston Mills region. Since our property is located at the intersection of the Greenville Treaty line and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail, we saw it as an opportunity to share the history of the American Revolution era Fort Laurens which was also referred to within the treaty. Fort Laurens is located about 1.5 miles east of our trail location. We also thought even if we started out with a single picnic table, it'll compliment our Towpath Trail Snack Shack. Upon sharing the idea publicly in social media, everyone seemed to like and give encouragement to pursue it. Pretty much on day one, my brother Marc who bikes the trail with his family, donated a park quality picnic table. BAM, park established, thank you Marc
The Peace Park will be located at our historical intersection which includes: the Greenville Treaty line, The Ohio-Erie canal, the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad, Ohio & Erie Canalway. National Scenic Byway route 212 section, the Buckeye Trail and also the Towpath Trail. Our family is willing to donate additional land than we did with the easement agreement we signed and submitted in May 2016 which allowed the last remaining gap in the towpath trail to be developed in 2019.
The Council designates July as National Hot Dog Month; National Hot Dog Day varies year to year – in 2019 it falls on Wednesday, July 17 – based on when the North American Meat Institute hosts its annual Hot Dog Lunch on Capitol Hill.
The Towpath Trail Snack Shack is a seasonal business and is CLOSED from Labor Day through Memorial Day annually!
While we are closed for the Winter, our mobile Hot Dog trailer may be available for catering events. We may also consider an event rental or lease. so call Joe Rinehart (319) GET-ADOG AKA(319) 438-2364, to inquire.
The Peace Park Blog is about the park we're establishing at the intersection of the Greenville Treaty Line and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail between the McDonnell Trailhead and the village of Bolivar. The Greenville Peace Treaty was the first peace treaty authorized by President George Washington and our current US Congress! 2020 will be the 225th anniversary of the treaty signed on August 3 1795 by Mad Anthony Wayne and the American Indians.
The Towpath Trail Snack Shack blog covers scheduled events we will attend at various communities along the entire 110 mile lenght of Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail. Whenever we're not at an event, chances are, we'll be blogging about something related to the Snack Shack or within a reasonable 5 mile biking, hiking or driving distance, from a remote trail location.
This Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail Blog was established to share helpful information relating to the recreational activities like biking, hiking, dog walking, horseback riding, power walking, bird and wild life watching that someone may be interested in participating.
