Discover Roscoe Village

Roscoe Village transports you back to a time when the Ohio and Erie Canal was bustling with Canal boats. Visit the restored 1830's Canal town and follow in the footsteps of living history, stroll through the gardens, tour the museums and exhibits and experience a horse-drawn canal boat ride on a section of the Ohio Erie Canal.

Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, festivals and special events mark the seasons. Autumn is a time for harvesting crops and communities in celebration. The Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival is the longest-running tradition at Roscoe Village. In late October, artisans and food vendors converge on and along North Whitewoman Street and the scent of apple butter wafts from steaming kettles through the crisp autumn air.

Roscoe Village Experience

Roscoe Village is an idyllic painting come to life. Renowned illustrator and muralist Dean Cornwell vibrantly captured life on the banks of the Ohio and Erie Canal in a 24-by-8 foot mural to commemorate the sesquicentennial celebration of the founding of Coshocton.

"What a gem!"

"What a special place! Start at the visitor center, watch the film about canals and the village. Next get your ticket for the living history exhibits - veterans/active servicemen are free and there are discounts for students, seniors and AAA members. With the ticket, you wear a wristband and can enter the buildings with a living history storyteller. We visited them all, and learned something at every stop. The weaver did a fantastic job explaining the craft and it was interesting to see a blacksmith in action. Print shop, broom maker, schoolhouse and Dr office - all were staffed and the guide shared stories of the people who lived there. Nestled in with the exhibits are some neat shops for antiques, Ohio made items and collectibles. Be sure to catch the canal boat ride - it requires an extra fee, and only runs certain times/days. The boat has a guide, and ours was fantastic! We learned so much about canals and their part in the history of Ohio. This place is a family friendly trip, something all ages can enjoy."
