Community Engagement

As a statewide public-private partnership, the Ohio Historical Society engages people and communities across Ohio in several meaningful ways. Did you know that the Society is responsible for more than 50 historic sites and museums in 40 counties across the state? That the Society operates the State Archives and the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, located in the Ohio History Center museum? We also help teachers teach history and social studies in the classroom by providing access to the “real stuff” of Ohio history. That “real stuff” of history includes more than 1.6 million objects, the largest collection of Ohio newspapers in the state, and countless images that help document the story of Ohio.

The Ohio Historical Society would like to share our passion for Ohio history with your community or organization. Use the tools below if you would like to request a special presentation from the Ohio Historical Society to an organization to which you belong. Your group may also want to consider hosting your event at the Ohio History Center and Ohio Village in Columbus or at one of the more than 50 historic sites and museums across Ohio.
