Paw Paw





Marker is at the intersection of Route 9 and Winchester Street in Paw Paw, Morgan County. Mostly known for the near by Paw Paw Tunnel. The canal tunnel, which took 14 years to complete and is 3,118 feet in length was considered at the time one of the engineering wonders of the world. The town and the tunnel take their name from the wild paw paw fruit tree that grew wild in the area.
