Overview
More
The Johnston Farm & Indian Agency celebrates 2,000 years of Ohio's rich history from prehistoric Indians to Ohio's canal era. The focal point of the peaceful 200-acre park is John Johnston--farmer, public official, and U.S. Indian Agent for western Ohio from 1812 to 1829. Here Johnston's numerous contributions to the growth of early Ohio and the settlement of frontier America are presented in a truly unique and beautiful setting. Guests may also enjoy a ride aboard the General Harrison of Piqua, a replica 70-foot-long canal boat. Restroom facilities and a gift shop are located in the museum. Open by appointment Mon thru Fri in April, May, September and October. Open to the public 9:30 to 5:00 Thurs/Fri and noon to 5:00 Sat/Sun in June, July, and August.

The Johnston Farm is a great place to learn about the early settlers of Ohio. The canal boat is great. The museum is very educational --learning about the Indian Tribes who were first in Ohio.
