Johnston Farm & Indian Agency “Prelude to War”
1st Regiment Sponsored event * If you have not been to the Johnston Farm, you are missing one of Ohio’s more historic working farms with a spring house and working canal boat. Set on an unblemished flood plain, you will get the true sensation of stepping back in time. Johnston Farm & Indian Agency was once the center of activity in the small settlement of Piqua, Ohio. John Johnston, a federal Indian Agent, settled at this site with this family in 1811. Johnston was well respected by American Indians and his peers. He performed Washington’s eulogy, was well acquainted with William Henry Harrison, served as an Ohio canal commissioner, was president of historical and philosophical societies in Ohio, helped found Kenyon College, served on the board of trustees of Miami University and was a member of the board at West Point.
