Lepi Enterprises just completed construction on the newly opened welcome center building at Ohio Village.
Ohio Village is a living history museum in Columbus, Ohio, United States. It is operated by the non-profit Ohio Historical Society.
The village, intended to provide a firsthand view of life in Ohio during the American Civil War, opened July 27, 1974, on 15 acres (61,000 m2) adjacent to the Ohio Historical Center in north Columbus. The 22 buildings that make up the village are a mixture of reproductions and historic structures moved to the site. Among those currently standing are the Town Hall, Print Shop, General Store and Masonic Lodge, Education Center, Pharmacy, Blacksmith Shop, Tinsmith Shop, Broom and Basket Shop, Cabinetmaker/Undertaker's Shop, Harnessmaker's and Weaver's shops, Ladies' Soldiers Aid Society, Village Bakery, Market House, Livery Stable, Schoolhouse, Doctor's Office and Residence, the Ohio Village Bank, the Colonel Crawford Inn and the Elk's Head Tavern. In 1995 a large traditional church was constructed to allow formal weddings to be scheduled in the village. The church is the village's most recent new construction.
The Ohio Village is open to visitors Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend starting in 2012. Visitors enter through the Ohio History Center museum and can enjoy the Village as part of their visit.
