The Wood County Historical Center in Bowling Green:  Located on the grounds of the former Wood County Infirmary, this unique site is one of the last county infirmaries where nearly all of the original structures still stand. The Center includes the large, Victorian Era building, now a museum with over thirty exhibit rooms dedicated to showcasing the history of the Home and of Wood County. The outdoor park, maintained by the Wood County Park District, offers an herb garden, nature trails, and numerous outdoor points of interest including a working oil derrick and an extensive collection of farm implements. The Center hosts a variety of public educational programs and events including the Wood County Heritage Days, Power of Yesteryear Tractor Show, Old Home Holiday Tours, monthly curatorial programs and social teas, vintage base ball team, and self-guided or guided group tours for schools and organizations. The site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
