Cincy Lifestyle follows up on the history of the canals in this region, but looking at some of the vessels that plied those waters. Mona Morrow takes us back in time to the days of the canal boat, one of the major modes of transportation on the Ohio River as settlers discovered life on its shores.  Mona shares the history of boats used for a variety of duties, which were quite the rage in their day. And many were very nicely outfitted for a leisurely trip down the Ohio River and its tributary canals. A fascinating look at the early Cincy Lifestyle.
