    Foodservice events thru 2020 have been canceled due to COVID-19!

    We're looking forward to providing foodservice on the towpath trail in 2021 and will limit the events we participate in those of historical nature related to Ohio's early history like the Great Trails Festival.

    Fortunately, while COVID-19 had closed us down for 2020, our Peace Park started to offer primitive campsites through Hipcampand over 45 campsites have been booked in the first 90 days of operation!

    It's inevitable that someone may lose or leave something behind. When we find anything, it's put in our lost and found drawer and we attempt to notify who we think it belongs to. If we haven't a clue who the item it belongs, we add it to our lost and found collection with the hope that it's claimed later.

  • Only Pepsi beverage products sold here!

    pepsi sold hereWe've decided to only sell Pepsi products because my wife Rose's father Don Ebner worked at Pepsi and we're a Pepsi family. I never got to meet my father in-law Don, but have enjoyed hearing some of the stories about him. One of the favorite family stories was that when Don worked at Pepsi in Canton back in the 60's & 70's, he was the employee that wore the Mountain Dew costume as a part of Pepsi's promotional program. I've joked with my wife that she had a little Hillbilly in her family as a result of that story.
