The Sandy and Beaver Canal ran 73 miles from the Ohio and Erie Canal at Bolivar, Ohio, to the Ohio River at Glasgow, Pennsylvania. The privately funded waterway, had 90 locks. It was chartered in 1828 and completed in 1848. However, the middle section of the canal had many problems from the beginning and fell into disrepair. The canal ceased to operate (as a whole) in 1852, when the Cold Run Reservoir Dam outside of Lisbon, Ohio, broke, ruining a large portion of the canal. Sections of the canal were in use for a few years. .75 miles of the canal lay in Pennsylvania; the rest was in Ohio.
