The Spirit of ’76 Museum celebrates the history of painter Archibald Willard, an artist of the famous “Spirit of ’76.” This painting is considered by many to be the nation’s most inspirational painting of all time. Willard spent most of his life painting in northeastern Ohio. In 1875, influenced by his father’s death, he decided to do a very serious piece depicting the American Revolutionary, which became famous. In addition to the many paintings by Willard, the museum contains Revolutionary and Civil War artifacts.
