Van Wert County Historical Museum
The museum is housed in a three-story stone mansion, fully restored and refurbished with period furniture and accessories as well as a lagre collection of area historical memorabilia. A restored railroad caboose, historical gazebo, and a one-room school are also on display, along with a large collection of agricultural equipment in the red barn located on their property.
The museum has recently moved and restored a two-story log house that was built in the 1860s. Adjacent to the log house is a period herb garden, designed by the local Evergreen Garden Club.
In 2007, the museum underwent an extensive renovation project which included making the mansion handicapped accessible.
