The WACO Airplane Company was the largest producer of civil aircraft in the 20's and 30's. WACO Air Museum was formed to honor the employees who made it great. WACO also designed and produced the CG4A glider used in WW II. Plan to spend at least an hour by listening to the audio tour (now available with QR codes and your phone). We have a Glider Theater with footage from WW II and you can try your hand at the WACO simulator. There are 10 airplanes on display along with factory memorabilia. Experience the Golden Age of Aviation by taking a ride in an open cockpit bi-plane. Call ahead for reservations.

This log cabin was originally Troy's first Tavern, Inn and courthouse. Lovingly restored and attenuated. I feel transported to the very early 1800s with feely-reals. There are several well-done thoughtful events throughout the year such as a tea and a Holiday dinner with vintage recipes and methods. Very special experience.

If you've ever wondered how people lived in the early 1800s, you'll be fascinated by this museum. The Overfield Tavern was opened in 1808, when the city of Troy was just a little frontier village. Built as a "square-hewn log building," it's an Ohio Historic Landmark. Established as a museum in 1948, it contains eight rooms fully furnished with early nineteenth century furniture, household goods, textiles, tools, and some clothing, as well as books and documents of interest to scholars. The museum director and curator, Bob Patton, is a fascinating fellow who is incredibly knowledgeable and (properly) enthusiastic about this collection. Visitors with a mild interest in history would have an enjoyable visit in an hour or so; those with a deeper interest could easily spend several hours examining the collection and conversing with Mr. Patton. History scholars may schedule private tours. An excellent, professionally produced 42-page museum catalog is available for purchase. There's an annex across the street, but we didn't have time to see it on this visit. Practical notes: It's only open on Saturdays and Sundays from April 1 to October 31. This is a very old building, so be aware that access to the rooms on the second floor is limited to those who are fairly agile. Admission is free, but donations are accepted and well deserved!

We love spending a pleasant hour wandering around Overfield Tavern Museum, imaging what life was like in the Ohio River Valley in the 1800s. As a historical landmark, it is unequaled in its restoration and its collection of items that would have been either handmade from local materials or brought by travelers. Each room is decorated to reflect its original use - tavern, kitchen, court, and sleeping rooms. Whether you are interested in Native American artifacts, or early Americana art and artifacts, or fire arms and militia items, this museum has it all.
