Sylvania Historical Village

5717 North Main Street | 419.517.5533

The Sylvania Historical Village is a collection of historic buildings located in the heart of downtown Sylvania, Ohio.  These buildings form a one-of-a-kind timeline that spans the 1840’s to the 1940’s.  The City of Sylvania invites you to step back in time as you wander through the beautiful gardens and the vintage buildings and exhibits that are featured at the Village.

The Sylvania Historical Village was established in 1995 to “collect, conserve, research, exhibit and interpret material, artifacts and archeology which contribute to a better understanding of the history and development of Ohio, with emphasis on the Maumee Valley and the Sylvania area.”  Our goals are being served by preserving structures and developing educational programs that reflect the architecture, history and lifestyles of the early citizens of our area.

Educational programs, group tours, facility rental fees and the income from the rent of the Historical Village’s retail buildings are placed in a Heritage Center Trust fund and are used to offset the cost of operating and maintaining the Historical Village.
