My name is Joe Rinehart and I recently donated a 12' to 20' easement to close the last remaining gap between New Philadelphia and Cleveland on the Ohio & Erie towpath trail. I've decided to establish a Snack Shack and Peace Park at the intersection where the Greenville Peace Treaty Line crosses the towpath trail which is also 1.5 miles from Fort Laurens. We offer a website with links to our social media from https://towpathtrailsnackshack.com with more detailed information about the Towpath Trail Snack Shack & Peace Park for your review.

Opened August 3rd 2017 on the 222nd anniversary of the Greenville Peace Treaty Line! The Greenville Peace Treaty was the first peace treaty by our current government having been authorized by George Washington & the 1st US Congress.


We sell Amish country's Walnut Creek Foods brand all beef hickory smoked Franks (AKA hot dogs), smoked sausages, bratwurst, hamburgers*, French fries*, sweet corn, soups, pickle on a stick, jerky, trail-mix, granola, chips, frozen ice pops, ice cold Pepsi products, bottled water and & more to the bikers, hikers and dog walkers enjoying the towpath and various events along the trail while promoting the early American history related to our property.
*contingent upon outdoor 10x10 tent menu plan availability and weather.

To generate the revenue to allow us to develop in stages a permanent Snack Shack on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail with a Peace Park Rest Area and for it’s long term maintenance.

To also promote the historical intersection of America’s 1st Peace Treaty, it’s relationship to Ohio’s only Revolutionary war era Fort Laurens, the closure of the last remaining gap in the 100 mile long Ohio & Erie Canal-way Towpath Trail (currently severed at the Tuscarawas/Stark county line), the Buckeye Trail, Ohio & Erie Canalway Scenic Byway, the railroad and the evolution of the telegraph & communications.
