Oberlin Heritage Center

The Oberlin Heritage Center includes three beautifully preserved historic buildings that tell the unique, nationally significant story of the community and college in Oberlin, Ohio from their beginning in 1833 through the next one hundred years. Learn about abolition and the Underground Railroad, aluminum history, women's history, decorative arts, student life and more. Guided tours of the James Monroe House (1866), the Little Red Schoolhouse (1836), and the Jewett House (1884) are offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Group tours by appointment. Due to the historic nature of the buildings, the tour involves walking and climbing stairs.
