Sylvania Historical Village & Heritage Center Museum
Sylvania Historical Village and Heritage Center Museum bring our history – our collective story – to life. Step through our doors and you enter the world as our ancestors knew it for the past 200 years.
The Sylvania Historical Village is a history and educational center located in the heart of Historic Downtown Sylvania. Through changing exhibits, engaging programs and living history demonstrations, we connect today’s audiences with our shared history.
The Heritage Center Museum located right on Main Street is housed in the early 20th century home and office of Sylvania Doctor Uriah A. Cooke. The Museum features rotating exhibits as well as permanent displays on Dr. Cooke and his family sharing the story of early 20th century life.
The Historical Village features original and authentic reproductions of historic building. The village includes one of the oldest Depots in the State which served Sylvania for nearly 100 years. Along with the Depot, we have an original 1800s log home, a replica stone school house and an original 1915 Train Engine which once ran the interurban trains servicing Sylvania and points west and north.
We offer a variety of programs for adult and student groups by reservation. Annual events on site and within the community provide memorable fun for families! Special programs focus on historic topics for all ages.
The Shops at the Village are home to several retail business featuring creative products and one of a kind gifts.
We also offer several of our spaces for outside rentals. We can host your small meeting, family gathering or special event. Our historic setting and grounds will make for an event to remember!
We are located just minutes from the Ohio Turnpike in beautiful historic downtown Sylvania. For updated hours and events visit our website at www.sylvaniahistoricalvillage.org or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
