Where History Comes Alive

Who We Are

Heritage Village Museum & Educational Center is owned and operated by Historic Southwest Ohio, Inc. a non-profit 501c (3) organization. Although we are located inside Sharon Woods Park, we are not affiliated with Great Parks of Hamilton County. No tax dollars are used to fund the facilities, staff or operations. Heritage Village Museum & Educational Center is supported entirely by visitors, grants and donations.

Volunteers and staff provide guided tours, supervise the gift shop, coordinate special events, demonstrate traditional crafts and cooking and present educational programs for over 15,000 guests each year. It is through the generous donation of time by our board and volunteers that we are able to continue providing quality educational and historical programs and events.

What We Do

Heritage Village Museum is a collection of historic 19th century buildings moved from locations around Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky to save them from destruction. Elk Lick House was the first building brought here, opening in 1971. Ten more historic buildings and two new structures have been added over time for a village of thirteen buildings.

We are dedicated not just to preserving these buildings, but to sharing the stories of the people who lived here. We bring to life the history of our region and the people who settled it, connecting visitors with our heritage. We serve thousands of school children and visitors every year with programs, tours and events that engage the imagination and enrich their understanding of the past. Your admission fees and donations help support our continuing efforts.
