posted in: Downtown News, Events | 0

Experience Living History at its finest! Carefully selected, reenactors will gather at the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency to present an historical timeline of the years 1748 (Pickawillany) – 1862 (Civil War Era Camp Piqua). The events that took place through those years, and the people involved, all had great impacts on the course of both America and Ohio’s history. Camps, civilian and military demonstrations, and numerous activities will take visitors back to some of the most exciting times this place has ever seen. The Johnston Home, the Indian and Canal Museum, and the canal boat General Harrison of Piqua all will help visitors visualize a time long past. This is truly a don’t miss event. Regular site admission applies: $10.00/adults, $5.00/children 6-12, free to those 5 and under as well as Johnston Farm Friends and Ohio History Connection members are free. The Johnston Farm is 2.5 miles north of Piqua just off SR 66 on Hardin Road.
