2022 Heritage village Schedule of Events

WATCH THE 19TH CENTURY COME ALIVE!

Step back in time at the "Living History Village"  located  in the lower level of Hedges Boyer Park in Tiffin, Ohio. Our spinners and weavers have been demonstrating their decorative arts for 30+ years! Take in a vintage baseball game -- Huzzah! Enjoy period music while tasting delicious food, some cooked over an open fire, then shop for vintage and early American arts and crafts. Our vendors feel workmanship and artistry is not just a token from the past. So come watch masterful craftsmen and craftswomen in action!

"Hands On Arts" lets your experience the cultural pleasures of our early American ancestors at no extra charge. With day long activities, you can see what life was like 200 years ago! Cannon fire every hour on the hour will help you keep track of time while enjoying an entertaining time with your family.

Help celebrate Tiffin's Bicentennial year by meeting our special reenactor guests, Governor Edward Tiffin and William Harvey Gibson, along with viewing the Seneca County Historical Society's Tiffin History Boards, on exhibit!
