A Springtime Hike at the Johnston Farm

Description: Saturday, April 13, 2013
1 p.m.
Johnston Farm & Indian Agency, Piqua

Spring is a time of new beginnings, and what better way to enjoy spring and mark Earth Day than with a hike at the Johnston Farm? History will be the focus of the afternoon as we make stops at the Adena earthwork and mound to look back at our prehistoric past, the Johnston Cemetery to learn about the symbolism of early tombstones and learn more about some of the individuals, we will conclude the hike with a visit to John Johnston’s massive double-pen log barn. Hikers will depart the Historic Indian and Canal Museum for an interpreted, moderate hike. Visitors should come prepared for the fields that are a part of the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency.
COST: $4.00/adults, $2.00/students 6-12, free to Johnston Farm Friends Council and Ohio Historical Society members.
