City of Piqua Press Releases
 Release Date: June 26, 2014
From the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency: History Alive at the Johnston Farm - "Nineteenth Century Life at the Johnston Farm" (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, July 11, 12, 13, 2014)
On Friday and Saturday evenings (July 11th & 12th) two living history scholars will bring early American History to life. Doug Wood tells the story of Outacite (Man Killer) Ostenaco, a Cherokee warrior who fought along-side British forces in the French & Indian War. Karen Vuranch will reprise her telling of the life of Mary Draper Ingles who was captured by Indians very early in her life. Programs will begin each evening at 7:00 PM with musical entertainment followed by both scholars. Bring a lawn chair and sit under our tent to enjoy an evening of "History Alive". In addition, a variety of demonstrators will be on hand throughout the weekend to add more history to the weekend. Food will be available Friday and Saturday to allow you to spend the day at the Johnston Farm, visit the Johnston home, Indian & Canal Museum, and ride the canal boat General Harrison of Piqua. On Saturday afternoon at 1:30 in the Education Center, both scholars will conduct a workshop on how to develop a living history character. Sunday will again feature tours of the Johnston home, Indian & Canal Museum, canal boat rides, and demonstrators and activities for the family.

COST: Regular site admission until 4:00 PM each day. Evening program (after 5:30) $10.00 per car and free for JFFC members.
