PIQUA – Come experience living history at its finest during History Alive at Fort Piqua, a weekend-long event taking place at Johnston Farm & Indian Agency in Piqua on July 23-25.

   With regular admission, visitors can see the very best, carefully selected, reenactors gathered at the Johnston Farm to present an historical timeline of the years 1748 (Pickawillany) – 1862 (Camp Piqua). These years mark the period of the greatest historical significance for this land. The events that took place and the people involved all had great impacts on the course of both America and Ohio’s history.

   A wide variety of camps, civilian and military demonstrations, and numerous activities will take visitors back to some of the most exciting times this place has ever seen.

   A Friday evening lantern tour of the camps will give visitors a different look at life during these times. Site Manager Andy Hite will present a program both Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the museum that will highlight the significant events that have taken place here. 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 Saturday and Sunday. While regular site admission applies on Saturday and Sunday, the Friday evening tours are being offered at a reduced admission.
  Along with history, the event will have daily activities, demonstrations and vendors, listed here:
