For History Lovers
Canal Winchester offers quite a bit to keep you coming back. Our Historical Society is active in many areas of our community. The founding of our Village as recorded by the Historical Society:
"Henry Dove brought his family to settle in this fertile area about 1811. He divided his land between his sons, Reuben and Jacob. When the Ohio & Erie canal came through Reuben Dove's wheat field, he wanted to sue the state. The canal workmen convinced him that he would be better off laying out a town since the area was midway between Columbus and Lancaster. On November 4, 1828, Reuben Dove and John Colman recorded the first plat for Winchester, Ohio, in Violet Township, Fairfield County. Dove named the village after his father's hometown of Winchester, Virginia.
Winchester flourished because of agriculture and transportation. The Ohio-Erie Canal brought passengers, freight and a means to transport grain to market. The first canal boat floated through Winchester in 1831. In 1869, the railroad came to Canal Winchester, bringing continued prosperity.
The village became Canal Winchester when the post office was established in 1841 because there were other towns in the state of Ohio with the name Winchester. The village was annexed to Madison Township, Franklin County, in 1851. In May of 1866, the Ohio Secretary of State granted incorporation papers for the Village of Canal Winchester."
