The Warren County Historical Society Museum 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 you will find a host of exhibits on early Americana 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 where antique toys, clocks, guns and clothing are arranged in charming storefront exhibits, 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, furniture and folk art. There is also a 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 45036. Admission is the same. The house is open Wednesday through Sunday from Noon to 4pm during the summer, weekends in the spring and fall.
