Waldschmidt Homestead & Camp Dennison Civil War Museum

Originally the 1804 estate of Christian Waldschmidt, a Revolutionary War veteran, the homestead was settled as part of the Ohio frontier’s New Germany. After the Civil War, the community retained the name of Camp Dennison, the site of the Union army’s largest training installation. Waldschmidt’s home is considered one of the best examples of Pennsylvania Dutch architecture west of the Alleghenies. The collection includes pieces of early Americana, and many original pieces used by the Waldschmidt family. The Civil War Museum is housed in Waldschmidt's daughter's cottage, and covers the history of Camp Dennison and related local Civil War era history. The property has been open for public tours since 1952, and is privately funded and operated by the Ohio Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
