Welcome to Canal Winchester!
Our community is a vibrant and historic town located approximately 15 miles southeast of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Established in 1828, Canal Winchester has a rich history in agriculture, commerce and transportation. From 1831 until 1902, the Ohio and Erie Canal was routed through what today is historic downtown Canal Winchester. Now positioned along U.S. Route 33 in Franklin and Fairfield counties, this growing community - which still boasts plenty of small town charm - is within a 10 minute drive of central Ohio's major interstate highways, international airports and big city amenities.
We're glad you stopped in to explore this site. If you haven't already, we hope your next step will be to visit us in person to see for yourself what our great town has to offer. In the meantime, enjoy the site!
