Marion Dunn Heritage Trail
The trail follows the route of the original road built to bring stones to the lock from the Halladay Quarry at Elgin. The path goes from the old canalmen’s house at the entrance to the Opinicon to the Chaffey Graveyard. The route passes among many old locust, black cherry, butternut and maple trees that have grown since Col. By had the land cleared, done in an attempt to to prevent malaria which was then thought to have been caused by bad air. The remains of one of Samuel Chaffey’s buildings, the lime kiln and blacksmith shop are located on this trail. Marion Dunn, a granddaughter of an original settler, provided the Chaffey’s Lock & Area Heritage Society with funds to create and maintain the trail.
