Economics of Spencerville

M E canal at spencerville oh

That is: Spencerville Oh-Aich.

This canal, the Miami and Erie, was Spencerville’s economic lever for several decades. Today, sections of the canal sport duckweed and make “lazy river” sound like whitewater. This section has a bit more energy, but no more cargo.

Today, Spencerville was cranking up for a weekend of fried food and carnival rides, which took over the main street, but lacked attendants and patrons when we passed through before lunch-time.

We followed the canal for quite a ways, and even saw one spot where it flowed above a natural river—rather strange.

Economics two days in a row? Apologies!
