Images of America: Piqua not only examines the town's history through images, it explores the ways in which the community has commemorated and celebrated its dynamic history. From its roots in Shawnee, Delaware, and other Native American cultures to its role as an important post on the Miami-Erie Canal, as well as its continued growth and development in the 20th century, the story of Piqua's rich history is told through its community organizations, parades, festivals, and most of all its citizens. This book provides a glimpse into the vast and multifaceted community that is Piqua.
