The Fall Celebration at the Johnston Farm will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017, from Noon to 5:00 PM.

Have you ever wondered what the Miami and Erie Canal looked like in the fall? Join us for this special day of activities at the Johnston Farm. There will be two canal boat rides aboard the General Harrison of Piqua; one at 1:00 p.m. that will travel north to Lock 8 and return to the landing. The second ride at 2:30 p.m. will travel the entire length of our section of the canal to give passengers an idea of what canawlers saw in 1845 as they moved across western Ohio by canal boat. Join the staff and volunteers of the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency for this special fall afternoon and take part in a variety of activities and demonstrations at the home of John Johnston as well as a tour of the home. Be sure to include a visit to the Historic Indian and Canal Museum.

Regular site admission: $9.00/adults, $4.00/students 6-12, free for Johnston Farm Friends and Ohiio History Connection Members, AAA & Senior discounts honored.
