Long Description:
The Miami and Erie Canal was constructed between the years from 1820 to 1845. The canal connected Lake Erie near Toledo to the Ohio River near Cincinnati. It also incorporated several branch canals. Lock 18 is one of 103 locks along the length of the canal.

The canal operated for many years, transporting cargo across Ohio and beyond. By 1906, the canal was no longer in operation, primarily due to the dominance of the railroad.
