The Hanoverton Canal Town District is a 23-acre (9.3 ha) area along Route 30 in Hanoverton, Ohio characterized by examples of canal-era architecture of the early to mid-19th century.[2] The district is located within the town of Hanoverton, Ohio which was settled and platted in 1813.[3]

Within the district are 30 brick and frame houses built between 1817 and 1874 that have remained unchanged over the years. The simple frame houses were originally built during the construction of the Hanoverton and the Sandy and Beaver Canal.[2][4]
