Get the 1800s canal experience at Providence Metropark. Travel back in time to the days when the smoothest way to go long distances was aboard boats towed by mules along man-made waterways. Board an authentic, but docked, mule-drawn canal boat named The Volunteer and learn what life was like during the canal era. Historical re-enactors spin tales of life in mid-1800s Ohio. Then tour an authentic 1800s saw and gristmill, Isaac Ludwig Mill, where interpreters demonstrate how water power was used to saw wood and grind flour.
