In 1795, most of 3-icon the natives left to Missouri-icon Missouriball, leaving the population to be largely White. Then Piqua was settled as two separate communities, Upper Piqua and Lower Piqua, but the two villages merged in 1800. Then in 1807, he got incorporated into USA-icon USAball.

The Miami and Erie Canal was started being constructed in 1825, and finished 20 years later in 1845. It is a former canal going from Cincinnati-icon Cincinnatiball to Toledo-icon Toledoball, and it passed through Piquarawr. The former 8-icon (colony) slave-populated community of RossvilleRawr became part of Piquarawr in 1846. Most of the 8-icon former slaves went to settle in RumleyRawr. During the USA-icon American Civil War CSA-icon, Piquarawr found itself on USA-icon The Union's side. Starting in the late 1800's and throughout the 20th century, Piquarawr was a major center for underwear manufacturing. In 1913 there was a flooding that deeply affected Piquarawr, this flood was known as the Great Dayton Flood and it killed about 360 people and costed areas affected by it 100,000,000 USA-icon 💵 US dollars.

It's called Miami Valley Crossing (It used to be called Piqua East Mall). They renovated it in the late-90's. In 1988, they made an annual underwear festival that was disbanded shortly after.

Also in 1988, the other mall in Piquarawr, Miami Valley Centre Mall, opened. It remodeled in the mid-90's. In 1997, the first Captain Underpants book was published by Scholastic.
