We spent a good couple of hours in the Heritage Center of Clark County. Pat was a dynamic, super enthusiastic tour guide. The Center is just a marvelous place to develop a full appreciation for early Americana, the Mid-West and specifically our wonderful Ohio history.

Really surprised by the amount of great historic and physical displays. Clean, informative, creative. We had nice time and could have spent more time. The scaled model of Springfield Ohio was great.

Spent an afternoon exploring downtown Springfield and the Heritage Center was one of our stops. We picked up food at the connected coffee shop and enjoyed walking through and looking at the historical displays throughout the museum. Clean, open, and airy environment.
