800 E 17th Ave, Columbus, OH 43211
Ohio History Connection operates dozens of state historic sites across Ohio. Its headquarters is the 250,000-square-foot (23,000 m) Ohio History Center in Columbus. Extensive exhibits cover Ohio's history from the Ice Age to the present. The Center includes state archives and library spaces, a gift shop, and administrative and educational facilities. The 1989 Smithsonian Guide to Historic America described the Center as "probably the finest museum in America devoted to pre-European history."
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, the history center serves as the entrance to Ohio Village, a living history museum that reproduces a 19th century town.
