Michigan’s first internal improvement in 1837 was a proposed canal that was supposed to run through the Rochester community! Join us for a tour of the remains of the Clinton –Kalamazoo canal – our answer to the Erie Canal. As you retrace its route from Mt. Clemens to Rochester, you will be able to walk along parts of the canal, where some portions still contain water, see remains of one of the locks, and learn the history of this manmade waterway that endured as a millrace long after its use for transportation ended.
 
Carpooling starts and ends at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, 1005 Van Hoosen Road, Rochester Hills. Guests can also join the tour at 10:00 a.m. at the Clinton Township Hall in the Historic Village at Romeo Plank and Canal Road, just south of the Clinton-Macomb Library.
