Sunday, August 13, 2017: Save the Schoolhouse Social

1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Come enjoy our social—and find out how you can help save our 1891 schoolhouse! The Myers Schoolhouse began its journey from the west side of Cincinnati to Heritage Village Museum in 2008—but it’s not yet ready to welcome and educate visitors along with the rest of our 19th-century buildings.

You can help us get this building ready to make history come alive for thousands of students and visitors each year. While you’re here, you can have some old-fashioned ice cream, play some old-fashioned games, learn the history of our schoolhouse, and meet the school mistress. This free event is a fundraiser; we’ll take donations and pledges to help us finish restoring the schoolhouse. Heritage Village Museum is a non-profit organization dependent on donations and admissions to develop educational programs, acquire buildings, and maintain facilities.

Admission: FREE 


Saturday, August 19, 2017: 1840 Whig Election Rally

10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In 1840, war hero William Henry Harrison—of Cincinnati’s own North Bend—ran for president. Senator Thomas Morris, a staunch opponent of slavery who lived in Heritage Village’s Elk Lick House in the early 1840’s, supported Harrison after his own party rejected his anti-slavery views. Come see both men speak at this election rally!

For the second year in a row, Heritage Village will host an 1840’s political rally on Saturday, August 19. Come and take part—and find out what political issues held the attention of this country before the Civil War. Print your own ballot in our print shop and cast your vote, taste some not-so-hard cider by our log house, hear William Henry Harrison address the crowd, and see a duel of honor played out.

Admission fee: $10 for adults, $6 for ages 5-11, free for 4 & under and members
