Support Your Local History

The museum offers a place to engage visitors, students, and community members in conversations about our past and how it relates to what we know today.

Any amount is welcome!

100% of every contribution, big and small, helps to further the mission of the Historical Society.
Donors are recognized on our website, Chanticleer newsletter, annual report, and on social media.

What Visitors are Saying

An amazing, awe-inspiring experience! It felt a little like going back in time. For all those who donated their memories and their time, thank you so much!
-Melissa, Toledo Ohio

This is where we got married, now we come back for the fun events with our daughter. She especially loves the herb garden!
-Carrie, recent visitor

A walk through memory lane for older adults and an education for younger ones.
-Shirley, Haskins, Ohio

I visited to see the exhibit on the county homes from all 88 counties in Ohio and their history. Since this museum used to be a county home, it was the perfect venue for this. I have visited before so I wasn’t surprised at how well done the exhibition was. The staff was very friendly and informative.
-Linda, recent visitor

Best ‘Tea’ I have ever been to! Highly recommend the Historical Museum for a family visit too. Informative and enjoyable.
-LouAnn, tea & talk attendee
