Getting to Know Canal Winchester, OH
With a population of 7,101 residents, the City of Canal Winchester sits between Fairfield and Franklin counties in Ohio. Canal Winchester was founded in 1828 by Reuben Dove and John Colman around the time of the development of the Ohio & Erie Canal. The canal was to go through Dove’s wheat field. He was reported to have wanted to sue the state at the time for this. However, a canal worker convinced him instead that he would benefit more from laying out a town in the area. He was convinced of this because of its location halfway between Lancaster and Columbus.
Later that year, Dove recorded the first plot for the town, originally naming the village after his dad’s hometown in Winchester, Va. Because of the local agriculture and easy access to transportation, the town quickly flourished. With the Ohio and Erie Canal bringing passengers and freight while providing a means to transport the local grain to market, the first canal boat floated through Winchester in 1831. In 1841, the village changed its name to Canal Winchester with the establishment of its first post office. At the time, there were five other locations in the state claiming the name Winchester.
A popular local legend depicts the story of how Canal Winchester got its post office. On Halloween, Oct. 31, in 1841, two local boys playing a prank hooked up their horses to the foundation of the post office of the nearby town of Waterloo. The boys used their horses to reportedly pull the small building across the street to Winchester, bringing an end to the town of Waterloo and establishing Winchester was a legitimate village that has steadily grown ever since.
The people of Canal Winchester every year host a Labor Day Festival during the first weekend of September, as well as a Christmas In The Village festival known for its food, choirs, and horse-drawn buggy rides.
