The Wabash and Erie Canal was a shipping canal that linked the Great Lakes to the Ohio River via an artificial waterway. The canal provided traders with access from the Great Lakes all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Over 460 miles long, it was the longest canal ever built in North America. The canal known as the Wabash & Erie in the 1850’s and thereafter was actually a combination of four canals.

Jeff Koehler is the County Historian for Clay county and a 30+ year member of The Canal Society of Indiana and a recognized expert on the Wabash & Erie Canal in the Wabash Valley. In his presentation, Jeff will discuss the construction, operation and economic impact of the Wabash & Erie Canal in Vigo, Clay and adjoining counties
