THE CANAL MUSEUM -
1605 N. VERITY PKWY.
The Canal Museum was erected in 1982 as a replica of a lock tender's house. It is located on the former site of the Miami-Erie canal and the Hydraulic Canal on the outskirts of current Smith Park.
At the Canal Museum you are able to learn about what it was like living during canal days and learn more about Middletown's history.
If you have not been to the Canal Museum in some time, we highly encourage you to check it out as there have been some changes.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Shartle House and Canal Museum will remain closed at this time. We will be announcing their openings as soon as we can. Thank you for your continued support through these unprecedented times.
