This scene depicts the Ohio & Erie Canal as it passed through Massillon, Ohio, directly behind the building it was painted on.

Rather than cover the entire wall with paint, the design of this mural utilizes the existing brick as part of the scene’s architectural setting.




“Today I was in Massillon, Ohio and saw one of the most beautiful paintings on the side of the building downtown – the 19th century canal scene. Absolutely beautiful!”

Claude Carson, North Canton, Ohio


“Whenever we get visitors from out of state, one of the first things we want to show them are your murals and they just can’t believe what they see. They have to feel the wall!”

Ruth Buckwatter, Massillon, Ohio
