States Historical Society administrator Rachel Barber," We hope that many local residents will stop by and visit
several of these sites on Sunday, making an afternoon of learning more about our county's history from our many museums. We so appreciate the collaboration of
many of our village historical societies in making history more readily available to our residents and guests alike."
Auglaize County: In Motion is the heritage tourism initiative
based upon the themes of motion, movement, and transportation reflected in so much Auglaize County history. IN MOTION
projects have been funded on three separate occasions by the
Ohio Humanities Council, including this year.
Founded in 1963, the Auglaize County Historical Society collects, preserves, interprets, and shares the
history of Auglaize County, enriching lives by connecting people and communities to the past and to each other.
