Their brochure describes Ohio's Small-Town Museum as "the World's Largest Collection of Small-Town Memorabilia," and it certainly is densely packed with [quoting again here] "neato stuff." It's really a result of one man's 40-year-long passion for cataloging and preserving the history of the community he loves, and if like us, you're lucky enough to be there on a quiet day when Charlie is there to give you a personal guided tour [and maybe even play the Edison Victrola for you], you'll get to hear the stories behind the stuff. If you chuckle at the idea of "Chic-Chic, the world's smartest rooster" or "Buster, the dog that voted Republican," you'll enjoy this museum Don't wait too long though - Charlie's a spry and charming fellow, but he's 82. Highly recommended for history and antique buffs and anyone nostalgic for small-town life as it used to be.

If you are traveling through Ohio and happen anywhere just south of Columbus make it a point to stop here!! The list oddities is looking, from astronaut memorabilia to the world's first traffic light. Best of all it's free. I highly recommend it!!!

My daughter and I stopped in to check out the museum. We were given a personal tour by a kind gentleman with a wealth of local knowledge. He had a story for every single item on display - from Roy Rogers to Elvis local connections and everything in between. A back room contains stacked volumes of yearbooks and local news. The lady working said that many school children come in and use the mini library for research.
There is a donation jar at the door but no actual admission fee. If you go, you will not regret it. Wonderful experience!
