Exploring Ohio Canals
The Old Canal
A Canal Dance
Last Trip in the Fall

The Harper’s Favorite Canal Song!

The General Harrison by Drab Irish Band is my boys’ favorite canal song ever! They asked to sing it every day we studied about canals, and they even made up their own verses. If you are looking for a fun canal song that you can’t help but dance to, this is the song for you. Fun Fact: You can go ride the General Harrison in person by traveling to the Johnston Farm and Indian Agency in Piqua, OH.
