Things to Do

Journey the Village Canal

Upper Canada Village Tow Scow in Water Journey along the Village canal on our horse drawn tow scow! The tow scow can seat approximately 60 people and travels back and forth along the canal from the dock behind Cook's Tavern to the Tenant Farm in the heart of the village.

The tow scow is a flat hulled barge that is drawn along the canal by a horse walking along the bank. Two villagers (one at the bow, and one at the stern) help steer the scow using long poles. In typical village life, the scow would be used to transport heavy goods to mills and other distant locations.

There is no additional charge to ride in the tow scow.
