Born at the dawn of America's great canal era, Girard thrived on the streams of commerce and life flowing through Pennsylvania on the Erie Canal. Home also to the nation's first Civil War monument and one of the few banks to remain open during the Great Depression, the town stayed in the mainstream of history even after the canals dried up and time passed on.
