Whether you're craving a summer stroll at the nationally recognized historic Serpent Mound, looking to catch a Muffins versus Diamonds base ball game in Ohio Village, or get a taste of freedom at the most active Underground Railroad “station,” the John Rankin House, our wildly diverse family of historic sites and museums across the state can connect you to stories and storytellers of generations past.

Accessibility

The Ohio History Connection welcomes all to be a part of history in the making. We strive to create a safe, accessible and friendly environment to explore our sites and collections. Our core value of inclusivity challenges us to constantly: seek out and remove barriers to participation, empower underserved audiences and improve how we deliver our services. Click here for more information about accessibility at Ohio History Center and Ohio Village.

About Our Historic Sites and Museums System

Our system of historic sites is uncommon; only a few states in the nation share our approach of linking landmark destinations and we are the largest in the nation. Thanks to the unique partnerships between the Ohio History Connection and the local groups that manage the sites on our behalf, we are making history by preserving history. Like us, these nonprofit groups, local parks and recreation departments, and Travel and Visitors Bureaus are committed to preserving our stories. The Ohio History Connection is proud to work with these local groups to help bring Ohio's varied and fascinating history to life.
