Piqua Historical Area

. Description:  Centerpiece of the site is the John Johnston farm, restored to 1829 appearance.  Costumed interpreters and craft demonstrators provide farm tours showing the two-story springhouse and  cider house, and display activities in the summer kitchen, log barn and fruit kiln areas.  On site is a modern museum constructed to resemble Fort Piqua, used by General Anthony Wayne as a supply depot.  A mile long stretch of the Miami and Erie Canal has been restored and a replica 70 foot long canal boat is available for rides, guided by costumed interpreters and powered by mule.
