From Mainstreet Piqua: Piqua Participates in Ohio Open Doors

Posted on: September 6th, 2018 No Comments

 

 

 

Several significant historical buildings and important cultural assets in Piqua will take part in Ohio Open Doors program.

 

Piqua will celebrate the Ohio Open Doors program this Sunday, September 9 from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. with open houses at several locations.  The buildings available to be toured include the John Scott Garbry Museum on Looney Road, the John Johnston home at Johnston Farm & Indian Agency on N. Hardin Road and the Piqua Masonic Temple at 217 W. High Street in downtown Piqua. All Ohio Open Doors events are free and open to everyone.

 

Piqua is participating in this program with communities across the state, as residents and visitors are encouraged to discover Ohio’s amazing heritage Fri., Sept. 7, through Sun., Sept. 16, as historic buildings and landmarks across our state open their doors for special tours and events during the statewide event Ohio Open Doors. Explore fascinating places that reflect Ohio’s rich heritage, some open especially for Ohio Open Doors events or offering behind-the-scenes looks that aren’t ordinarily available.  The Ohio History Connection created Ohio Open Doors in 2016 to promote and inspire pride in Ohio’s heritage and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

 

Signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on Oct. 15, 1966, the Act has proven instrumental in transforming the face of communities from coast to coast, establishing the legal framework and incentives to preserve historic buildings, landscapes and archaeological sites. It drives economic revitalization by attracting investment, supporting small business, stabilizing neighborhoods and creating jobs.

 

The Ohio History Connection’s State Historic Preservation Office administers the National Historic Preservation Act in Ohio. Many of the landmarks featured in Ohio Open Doors events are in the National Register of Historic Places, which the National Historic Preservation Act created.

 

“Ohio Open Doors shares stories of important landmarks right in our backyard, highlighting the history and unique nature of some of Ohio’s most treasured historic places,” says Burt Logan, executive director and CEO of the Ohio History Connection.

 

A downloadable list of the participating locations can be found on the Mainstreet Piqua website at www.mainstreetpiqua.com  They will also be available at all the locations on Sunday, September 9. For more information about Ohio Open Doors, visit ohiohistory.org, or call 937-773-9355.
