Ohio Village Will Reopen July 7 For A Summer Of Old-Timey Fun

Ohio Village will open its 19th-century inspired community for the summer on July 7.

Ohio Village is set in the 1890s. The turn of the century brought big changes in technology, politics, and everyday life.

Visitors can come and explore starting July 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Experience storytelling, food preparations, and even cooking demonstrations with vintage recipe cards. Fee like feeding some chickens? Go for it. Want to play croquet on the village green? You can do that too. There will even be a vintage 19th century baseball game.

The Ohio Village Emporium now offers a selection of grab-n-go foods and cold beverages every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can eat your food at the nearby picnic tables, or you can bring a blanket and find a quiet spot to enjoy an old-fashioned picnic.

In addition to new characters in the village, the opening will also include artisans and musicians. Artisan crafts will include paper quilling, basket making, fiber arts, watercolor painting, 1890s dancing demonstrations, pottery, tin making, china painting and bobbin lace.

If you are bringing the kiddos be sure to swing by Storybook Village when it returns August 14-15. There will be fairytale characters, and special visits by PBS characters.

Ohio Village is located at the Ohio History Center, located at 800 E. 17th Ave. Admission is $14 for adults, $7 for kids between 4 and 12, and $11 for seniors. Parking is free.
