Orange Johnson House Museum
Visit the Orange Johnson House Museum and step back into nineteenth-century Worthington - into one of the oldest residences standing in its original location in central Ohio.
This property offers a unique view of both the pioneer and Federal periods in Worthington. The pioneer architecture can be seen in the low-ceilinged keeping room and the kitchen has the original open fireplace with a large iron crane and bread oven. The house is furnished with period pieces, some of which have a connection to early Worthington families and activities.
In 1816 Orange Johnson bought the property and added a stately Federal-style addition. Surrounded by period furnishings, costumed guides describe the everyday pursuits of the early Worthington settlers. Visitors will learn about the comb making trade and see a collection of 19th century women's hair combs and comb making tools.
