Miamisburg Mound State Memorial Park:    The Miamisburg Mound is the best known but least understood major prehistoric Indian feature in Ohio.  It measure nearly 70 feet in height and 877 feet in circumference at the base.  Archeologists believe the Mound was built as a ceremonial site by the Adena Indians who arrived in the Miami Valley about 1000 B.C.  The lovely park land surrounding the Mound has fine facilities for picnics and other recreational activities.

Baum Opera House:    This imposing brick structure was erected in 1884 and was originally known as the Star City Opera House.  With a seating capacity of 800 persons, it was one of the finest in the state and the first to be built in a town of this size.  Today it is the site of many public and private functions and home to the Playhouse South Community Theater.


Miami-Erie Canal:    The canal was built in the late 1820's and connected Lake Erie with the Ohio River.  Sometime after the great flood of 1913, the portion of the canal through downtown was filled in and is today identified as the "Cinder Path" parking lot.  Sections of the original canal can still be seen to the North and South of the city.


River Corridor Bikeway:    This hard surfaced bike path rests on top of the levy built shortly after the great flood of 1913 to protect the communities of the Miami Valley from encroachment by the river during periods of heavy and sustained rainfall.  The bike trail provides easy access to Downtown Miamisburg and the opportunity to join in with endless miles of trail to the North, East and South.
