Heritage Village Museum
Heritage Village Museum is a living history museum depicting life in Southwestern Ohio through-out the 19th Century. Homes, out-buildings and equipment on the museum grounds were moved here from other locations in the region to be preserved and aid in telling the story of our recent past. Interpreters at the museum provide the facts and stories that bring the Village to life with nostalgic glances of days gone by.
During special events at the Village interpreters demonstrate some of the historic tasks and crafts of the 19th century such as spinning, weaving, candle-dipping, soap making, hearth cooking, carpentry work, herb lore, gardening, printing, trade and bartering, and communication.
While you are here explore all the buildings, talk with the interpreters, try your hand at activities you see happening. You are a very important part of this Village. Linger awhile and enjoy your stay. That is why we have benches, for you to sit and soak up the quiet days of yesteryear. Enjoy your visits to the Village, learn something old, and come back soon.
Open year-round for school and scout programs, weddings, and private tours. Seven of our buildings are handicap accessible. Please call ahead to schedule for group tours: 513-563-9484 Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm.
