Harmon Museum and Warren County Historical Society is located in historic downtown Lebanon, Ohio (just two doors south of the Golden Lamb Inn) and is acclaimed as one of the nation’s most outstanding county museums. Inside is a host of exhibits ranging from prehistoric times through the Victorian age and beyond. Most notable are the museum’s extensive paleontology and archaeology collections, its Village Green exhibit (that has charming arrangements of antique toys, clocks, guns, and clothing), and its Shaker Gallery (which features one of the largest collections of Shaker artifacts found anywhere). Other noteworthy exhibits include a pioneer cabin, unique collections of horse-drawn vehicles, early farming tools, and folk art. There is also local history and genealogy library that houses a vast quantity of manuscripts and reference material. The museum store, The Rocking Horse, sells Shaker reproductions, decorative accessories, and books.
The historical society also owns and operates Glendower Historic Mansion at 105 Cincinnati Ave. in Lebanon, Ohio. Admission is the same. The mansion is open Thursday – Sunday from 12pm – 4pm during summer and December.
