Lorain County Historical Society / The Hickories Museum
The Lorain County Historical Society is housed in The Hickories
Museum, an 1895 mansion combining Richardsonian Romanesque and
Shingle-style architecture. The interior features Tiffany-style windows,
six fireplaces, carved faces and a private chapel. French and Gothic
styles are apparent in the oak, mahogany and cherry woodwork. The museum
interprets the lifestyle of a wealthy Lorain County family in the early
LCHS hosts yearly events such as the popular Valentine Tea, Spring
Garden Luncheon, Youth History Camp, Ice Cream Social, Golf Scramble,
BBQ and Silent Auction and a lovely Holiday Party. Please visit www.lchs.org for a listing of current events.
LCHS is a multi-dimensional organization based on the belief that an
understanding of the past is critical to building a successful future.
The current LCHS mission is to serve all persons and organizations
interested in Lorain County's past, present and future by collecting,
preserving, interpreting and presenting the history of Lorain County.
The LCHS will be expanding with a new Lorain County History Center
that will greatly enhance its ability to accomplish this mission and to
provide learning opportunities for all of Lorain County's citizens.
