The Cascade Locks were built between 1826 and 1827 and remain one of the main reasons that Akron became a city to begin with. The Cascade Locks provided water power for many mills and industrial businesses along the canal. Between the hydropower and the fact that it took up to five hours to traverse the Cascade Locks, commerce became plentiful. Soon, more and more people settled in what is now North Akron. The Cascade Locks are constructed of huge blocks of sandstone. All the locks are 15 feet across and up to 90 feet long.
