City of Piqua Press Releases
 Release Date: July 25, 2014
From the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency: 
The Johnston Farm & Indian Agency Invites You to 
"An Evening on the Canal" on Saturday, August 16, 2014 -
Reservation Event, 6:30 PM
Join us for an evening that takes you back to the time the world moved at four miles an hour at the end of a towrope. The evening will begin with a hearty meal of baked pork chop, garlic and butter red potatoes, colorful green beans, and cherry dump cake for dessert that will be served in the comfort of the Education Center overlooking the Miami and Erie Canal. After dinner, guests will board the General Harrison of Piqua for a relaxing ride as twilight settles on the canal. Along with the clip clop of hooves on the towpath, passengers may encounter any of a variety of characters that could have been travelling on any of Ohio's canals. Missioners, temperance proponents, ladies of questionable character, and the boat crew itself would each add to the excitement of a trip on the canals of Ohio. This is a RESERVATION ONLY event, so call 937-773-2522 or 800-752-2619 early to book your passage for this popular once-a-year opportunity.

COST: $35.00/adults, $30.00/children 6-12, $30 & $25.00 for Johnston Farm Friends Council and Ohio History Connection members.
