Ohio History Connection
Historic Preservation Office

With over 180 staff members, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of partners in historical societies, local history groups and local and state government, the Ohio History Connection champions all Ohio history, including the 50+ historic sites in the Society's network throughout Ohio. The Ohio History Connectionís network of historical sites includes homes and memorials associated with US presidents such as Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, or Warren G. Harding. It includes early cultures and mound building sites such as Serpent Mound, Ft. Ancient, or Newark Earthworks. Some historic sites help visitors learn about the entrepreneurial and literary genius and diversity of Ohioans. Other historic sites in the network are nature preserves and are great places to hike and take photos such as Cedar Bog or Wahkeena. From automobiles to wedding gowns, the Ohio History Connectionís history collections document both the ordinary and extraordinary stories of Ohioans. The Society collects, preserves, catalogs, manages and makes available to the public a vast collection of about 1.6 million objects in its museums across Ohio, and in its flagship museum in the Ohio History Center. Additionally, serving as the State Archives, allows people to discover the stories of the Ohioans who built our stateís farms, industries, businesses, schools, churches, social organizations, governments, and communities. Connecting people to the stories of Ohio is part of the daily work of the Society and is accomplished in part through educational efforts such as sponsoring National History Day in Ohio, and Ohio As America, an online textbook and curriculum for teaching the history of Ohio. Overseeing the Historical Markers program and the Local History Office are additional ways of connecting people to Ohio history.A A division within the Society, the Historic Preservation Office is the State Historic Preservation Office for Ohio. The Office nominates properties to the National Register of Historic Places, reviews rehabilitation work to historic buildings for tax credits, reviews federally assisted projects for effects on historic properties, qualifies communities for the Certified Local Government program, and provides technical assistance and advice to the public. The Society is a non-profit organization that is funded in part by the State of Ohio, and depends on gifts, membership revenue, volunteers, grants, and other earned revenue such as admission fees, to serve the people of Ohio.
