Family

We welcome families to visit our historic sites, and to participate in family friendly activities. Here are a few suggestions: see re-enactors at places like Ft Meigs, or visit the the Ohio Village, or participate in the activities related to Native cultures and archaeology on the Ancient Ohio Trail, or see an Ohio Village Muffins base ball game, and visit Ohio History Center to see "Conway" the mastodon, and other kid friendly exhibits. Or stay home, sit back and take advantage of our online resources. Let’s Explore Ohio!

Other Resources for Families:

Passport Program 

Families are an important focus of the educational programs, activities, and events developed and organized by the staff and volunteers in the Society.  For example, the Passport Program launched for the summer of 2012 is a fun way to travel the state and collect stickers from any of all of the 50+ sites in the Society's network.

Summer Programs and Scout Programs

Check with Programs and Events to learn about upcoming activities for youngsters, as well as learning about the Special Events --such as Glorious Fourth, All Hallows Eve and Dickens of a Christmas-- that bring stories, activities, and traditions into the lives of your whole family.

Teaching Ohio history to fourth-graders

The Ohio Historical Society has developed Ohio As America, an online curriculum and text book for fourth-graders. An eighth-grade version is in development at the Society. It’s user-friendly, packed with resources, and available for homeschooling.
