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 all beef hickory smoked Franks (AKA hot dogs), exotic sausages like bison, caribou, elk, venison, 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 history of America’s 1st Peace Treaty, it’s relationship to Ohio’s only Revolutionary war era Fort Laurens, and the closure of the last remaining gap in the 100 mile long Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail currently severed at the Tuscarawas/Stark county line!

Electric or Generator

While we have a generator to provide electric for our trailer, we’d like to ask to provide electric hookup. We believe that this would allow us to operate without the noise of a generator and would provide better public safety of both foot and passing automotive traffic. However, our cart is completely self contained.


We attempt to maintain a 1788-89 Revolutionary war & 1830’s Ohio-Erie canal era theme to our menu.

Partnership Synergy

We’ll promote your business as a “Partner” toward helping to establish the ¼ acre “Peace Park & Rest Area” located where the Greenville Peace Treaty line intersects the Towpath Trail at 689 St Rt 212 NW, Bolivar, Ohio 44612! You’ll also be included in any publicity from news interviews or advertising.

Advertising or Promotional Signs

On each end of our Hot Dog & Sausage trailer or cart we’d make available space for promoting local non-profit or government events related to the local communities, its history and Towpath Trail. We also have swooper flags that may be placed on property easement to help draw consumers in for specific promotions.


We’d suggest as long as both parties are satisfied and that either party may terminate the “Partnership”, for any reason, with a minimum 3 day, preferably a 7 day notice!
