Piqua Historic District to Host Fall Mum Sale
Information provided by the Piqua-Caldwell Historic District Association
PIQUA - The Piqua-Caldwell Historic District Association (PCHDA) has decided a Holiday Home Tour in 2020 is just too risky with the continued uncertainty of COVID 19 and instead will host a mum fundraiser this fall.
Mums will be large (up to 24” across) and are available in assorted fall colors. This being the charter year for the sale, quantities will be limited, and sales will be first-come, first-served. PCHDA hopes to expand the sale in the future and offer pre-sale orders.
On Sept. 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., mums will be arranged along Ash Street in Piqua on the sidewalk between Caldwell and North Downing (across from Westminster Presbyterian Church). Customers can hand-select their mums and the PCHDA will have volunteers available to help get them to their car. Anyone purchasing more than five mums will be offered free delivery within Piqua later that same day. Payment methods are cash or check (payable to Piqua-Caldwell Historic District) and customers are encouraged to wear masks.
Proceeds from this sale will support the Piqua-Caldwell Historic District where aluminum cast historic markers are being placed to help increase awareness of the rich history behind the beautiful historic homes there. PCHDA also aspires to partner with the City of Piqua to install historic district street signage to identify the district as specified in the National Register of Historic Places to encourage an increase in heritage tourism within downtown Piqua.
