Historic Zoar Village is the Zen of Ohio. Founded in 1817 by a group of about 200 German Separatists seeking escape from religious persecution in their homeland. Today, Zoar is a community of approximately 75 families living in homes built from 1817 to the present. Many of the original homes have been preserved or restored, as have the many buildings and museums which are maintained by the Ohio History Connection.  Historic Zoar Village is a quaint German village where you can spend the day walking through the museums and beautiful gardens. Take a step back in time and enjoy a meal, beverage or snack at one of the local restaurants. Shop at the Zoar Store for unique and eclectic items and gifts, for tour tickets and information. You can also rent bicycles to tour the town. If you are looking for an easy and relaxing hike or bike ride, one of the Ohio Towpath trailheads is located at Zoar. The village is open to the public from early April through December.  Tours are available throughout the year. The Zoar Community Association graciously provides some of the buildings and the picture-perfect gardens for rent to the public. Zoar Village is a beautiful location for your wedding or other celebration.
