The Canal Museum

The Erie Extension Canal was the major means of travel from Pittsburgh to the Great Lakes from 1854-1871. This canal system was vital to the iron industry in western Pennsylvania before the introduction of the railroads.

Inside the Canal Museum, visitors will find various artifacts and historical information from the canal era, including a replica of the Rufus S. Reed -- a typical canal boat.

Greenville's Canal Museum preserves some of the history of the Erie Extension Canal. Visitor's to the area will find it at the entrance of Riverside Park on Alan Avenue (the site of Lock No. 22).
