small community

''' is a small community in the southernmost part of Thorold, Ontario, Canada. The community is divided in half by the Welland Canal, as there is no bridge in the immediate vicinity to connect the two halves of the community. In the summer, a passenger ferry runs across the canal. In the winter, residents have to use the bridge on Highway 20 (Highway 20 (Ontario)), which results in a 13.3 km (8.3 mi) trip to get to the other side (map). group1 Cities list1 Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls, Ontario) • Port Colborne • St. Catharines • Thorold • Welland group2 Towns group2 Communities list2 Port Dalhousie (Port Dalhousie, Ontario) · Port Weller (Port Weller, Ontario) · St. Catharines · Thorold · Allanburg (Allanburg, Ontario) · Port Robinson (Port Robinson, Ontario) · Welland · Dain City (Dain City, Ontario) · Port Colborne '''Allanburg''' is a community within the City of Thorold (Thorold), Ontario, Canada.

) made the first transit, upbound to Buffalo, N.Y. (Buffalo, New York), with Merritt as a passenger on her deck. The first canal ran from Port Dalhousie, Ontario on Lake Ontario south along Twelve Mile Creek to St. Catharines. From there it took a winding route up the Niagara Escarpment through Merritton, Ontario to Thorold, where it continued south via Allanburg to Port Robinson, Ontario on the Welland River. Ships went east (downstream) on the Welland River to Chippawa, at the south (upper) end of the old portage road, where they made a sharp right turn into the Niagara river, upstream towards Lake Erie. Originally, the section between Allanburg and Port Robinson was planned to be carried in a subterranean tunnel. However, the sandy soil in this part of Ontario made a tunnel infeasible, and a deep open-cut canal was dug instead.
