Good place to go if you are interested in the history of the clark County Springfield OH area. Otherwise it’s not that exciting of a place. The architecture on the building is awesome.

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.
