Roscoe Village Shops

Welcome to the Roscoe Village shops.

The quaint shops of Historic Roscoe Village carry area crafts, elegant home furnishings, books and gifts, gourmet coffees and foods, and much more. Watch the traditional leatherworker as he hand-stitches leather goods the old-fashioned way, or observes the potter forming clay at the potter’s wheel, where a paint-your-own-pottery option is also available. Children will enjoy choosing from unique selections of old-fashioned candy or wooden toys at the general store. Exquisite jewelry, musical instruments, clothing and other accessories, and wood carvings are some of the other original items available at the Shops of Roscoe Village. Take a break from shopping and dine at one of the delightful restaurants.

To further experience life during the Canal Era, enjoy a peaceful float down a restored section of the Ohio and Erie Canal on the horse-drawn Monticello III canal boat or browse through the unique collections of the accredited Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. Roscoe Village is open year-round, seven days per week. For more information, call 800-877-1830 or visit us online at

Historic Roscoe Village is reaching out to toy lovers of all ages with a vintage Toy Cellar Exhibit in the lower level of the Toll House!

More than four hundred toys made by American manufacturers are on display at the Toll House on Whitewoman Street in the heart of Roscoe Village. The Toy Cellar contains vintage transportation vehicles made of cast iron, tin, wood, pressed steel, rubber, and other materials. Tin wind-ups from the early 1900s to the 1950s and other mechanical items are demonstrated for guests visiting the village.

A number of Ohio toy companies are represented from Akron, Barberton, Kenton, Ravenna, Canton, and Dayton. Toys from major firms such as Marx, Keystone, Wyandotte, Buddy L, Ives, Kingsbury, Steelcraft, Wolverine, Tootsie Toy, and Crandall are on display.

A wide variety of toys from yesteryear include kaleidoscopes, marbles, alphabet boards, comic characters, games, construction sets, wind-ups, electric trains, and much more!

This remarkable collection is a 40-year collection on loan to the Roscoe Village Foundation by a private collector, who will be conducting demonstrations and sharing his knowledge of vintage toys.

Hours for the Toy Cellar are 1:00pm to 3:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and is free to the public. Look for the “Toy Cellar is open” sign in front of the Toll House located in Historic Roscoe Village.
