Old Drawings of Milan, Ohio

 

The above drawing of Milan and it's canal basin was published in Henry Howe's Ohio Historical Collection and it was drawn from the North hill of Milan. In the immediate foreground is Kneeland Townsend's distillery. Beyond it, situated between the old mill race body of water and the Huron River is Ebenezer Merry's second flour mill and the old woolen mill. To the extreme right, is the old covered bridge. In the center of the drawing is the canal basin with schooner ships sitting in the basin and lining the far edge of the basin are twelve of the old warehouses. The only remaining warehouse is on the far right of that row. The town of Milan is behind the basin on the top of the hill. We've colored the water blue to help the viewer separate the three bodies of water.
