Just 30 minutes from Dayton on Interstate 75, Piqua, Ohio is a suburb in Miami County. The city is bisected by the Great Miami River. Originally natives of Illinois and Indiana, the Miami Native Americans settled in Ohio in the early 1700’s, possibly driven from their land by the stronger Iroquois. During that century Ohio was a microcosm of the global showdown going on between European powers Britain and France. Unfortunately, the Miami consistently tended to back the wrong side. At first they allied themselves with French fur trappers who came into the area beginning in the 1600’s. Soon enough, however, British settlers moved into Ohio and the Miami began trading with them. Just before the French and Indian War, known as the Seven Year’s War in Europe, the Miami flipped again and helped the French. When the French were defeated, some Miami tribes moved east to Indiana to avoid conflict with the British. Fearing colonial settlement, the Miami again tilted toward the British during the American Revolution. After the British defeat, they remained enemies of the new United States. Despite initial victories over American forces by Miami leader Little Turtle, the Miami and other native warriors including the Shawnee were finally defeated by General Anthony Wayne at the Battle of Fallen Timbers north of Piqua near Toledo. Eventually most of the remaining Miami were pushed east and south to Kansas and Oklahoma. The name Piqua is believed to come from the Shawnee term for rising from the ashes.
It’s certain that a Piqua tutor will help you stay caught up on your most difficult academic courses so you can take some time away from the books to enjoy Piqua and the Dayton metropolitan region. Completed in the early 2000’s, Linear Park has more than twelve miles of paved trails which connect to the River’s Edge Trail and the Great Miami River Trail. The trail is open to walkers, joggers, bicyclists and roller skaters. Highlights include a scenic overlook of the Great Miami River at Lock Nine Riverfront Park. Fountain Park is one of the largest public parks in Piqua. The park includes pavilions, athletic fields, tennis courts and barbecue pits. Nearby Echo Hills Municipal Golf Course features a 6,000-yard 18-hole course and driving range.
Visitors and residents alike can celebrate Piqua’s past and present during the city’s downtown walking tour. Titled “A Time of Change: Downtown Piqua” the two-hour self-guided tour begins at the public library and visits several historic buildings in the city’s center. The recently restored Fort Piqua Hotel in Fort Piqua Plaza was originally built in 1914 and today is considered the gem of the city. Visitors can view the hotel’s beautiful lobby with a stain glass window, skylight and marble staircase. The hotel also houses an art gallery and historical museum.
Once the center of activity in Piqua, the Johnston Farm and Indian Agency is a 19th century farm and museum chronicling over 2,000 years of Ohio history. Visitors can tour the Johnston home which has been restored to its original appearance with vintage furnishings. The site also includes a museum which traces the history of the Eastern Woodland Native Americans, especially the Miami and Shawnee. Visitors can also take a ride on a mule drawn canal boat along a restored section of the historic Miami and Erie Canal. The farm is named after federal Indian agent John Johnston who came to live in Piqua in 1811.
