The East Piqua II Tour

05-18-19 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Lock 9 Park
Address: 125 E Water St, Piqua, OH 45356, USA

East Piqua was one of the earliest areas of Piqua to be developed.  Job Gard built a log lean-to cabin prior to 1800 making it Piqua’s first European-American home.  With the coming of the Miami Canal in 1837, the area grew in size and complexity.  Churches and mills were located next to simple brick and frame homes that soon competed with large Federal and Greek Revival style structures.  Brick yards became baseball diamonds and mill races became streets.  This tour will pass some of Piqua’s earliest homes.

The tour begins at Lock Nine Park on East Water Street.

This walking tour is a ticketed event.  Please stop by the Mainstreet Piqua office at 326 N. Main Street to pick up your ticket.  Tickets are $5 per person.  Call 773-9355 if you have any questions.
