This was a side trip we took on a whim. We arrived at lunchtime so no one was available for a tour of the factory. They offered us a self guided tour which we took. There were stations with explinations but I'm sure we would've gotten more out of it with a guide. Too bad they didn't stagger their employees... More

You got to stop here if you're anywhere near Logan, Ohio. It's a quaint business with a super staff that still makes washboards for everyday use. Actually it's really the only one in the world that still makes them with any type of quality anymore. These are still hand made and this company sends them overseas to our Troops who... More

The Washboard Festival in Logan, OH is a fun little festival to attend. Lots of good food, entertainment & friendly people. The auction they hold to raise money has quality items. Rides for the kids are free!

We were greeted by a nice lady behind the desk who offered to let us view the factory. Everyone was nice and friendly. You can purchase a variety of washboards for washing cloths or playing as musical instruments they also have a large array of soaps. This is an interesting place to visit and see. Glad we stopped.

After a few days of hiking we were looking for something a little educational for our kids to see before heading out of town. We were too late for the guided tour, but still were able to walk around the factory and the lady working was so kind to show us how they make the washboards. We enjoyed visiting with... More

What a great experience! We missed the tour but were allowed a quick peek in the back. We got talking to the owner, an Englishman who loves his new country and this area of Ohio. This is the only washboard factory in the Americas and business is good. They sell to mother earth folks, musicians and they ship washboard kits... More

The Washboard Factory has formal tours ($4/adult - lower for seniors, kids and military - includes a souvenir) but there was nobody else so they didn't have a tour. However, we were able to walk around by ourselves and that is free. We saw their old and current equipment and could watch and talk to employees making the washboards so... More

My wife and I enjoy going for a day to watch the various live bands, see what the vendors have, and eat (what we call) fair food.

The tour of the Columbus Washboard factory was really interesting. My husband and I got the opportunity to see the staff in action during the Washboard Music Festival.
