Trade, Trails, and Travel

Tuesday, May 09
1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $35
Skill Level: Beginner

This experience starts at the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency with a visit to the Ohio Woodland Indian & Canal Museum, which will provide a look into early contact between Native Americans and European settlers. Trade between 1748 and 1845 heavily impacted travel in Ohio driving the need for a much-improved transportation system, including the creation of Ohio’s canal system. A ride on one of Ohio’s four working canal boats plus a walking tour of downtown Piqua, a canal town, will complement the discussion of how trade has influenced the growth of travel from trails to canals.

Tour Leaders: Andy Hite, Johnston Farm & Indian Agency, and Jim Oda, Piqua Public Library
