Archbold, OH – Make plans for a memorable Labor Day Weekend with a fun-filled trip to Sauder Village! A time-honored, family getaway in the Midwest – Sauder Village is ready to welcome guests of all ages to the historic village, restaurant, campground and inn for the holiday weekend!
“What was once considered a day-trip is now a vacation destination in Northwest Ohio,” shared Kim Krieger, Media Relations. “Families come to stay at the Inn or Campground, play in the pool, visit unique shops, enjoy great food, and make special memories while visiting the Historic Village.”
Recognized as Ohio’s largest living-history village, this award-winning destination offers plenty for guests to see and do. Throughout the Historic Village, guests can experience life in Ohio through activities and stories shared in the community shops, Native American area, Pioneer Settlement, historic homes, farms and gardens. Guests of all ages enjoy visiting places like the District 16 School, Grist Mill, Herb Shop, Depot, Church and General Store as well as taking a ride on the Erie Express Train or the horse and buggy.
“Our guests are in for a real treat this year with the opening of our newly renovated Grime Homestead,” Krieger added. “The original farmhouse at Sauder Village has been remodeled, ‘modern’ artifacts like a telephone, radio and player piano have been added, and the hemline of the interpreter’s dresses has been shortened! Costumed guides share stories, demonstrations, and hands-on activities to help guests experience life in the 1920s in the home, barns and garden areas of the Grime Homestead.”
Historic Sauder Village will be open Saturday, Sunday and Monday for the holiday weekend. Hours are Saturday, September 5 from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Sunday from noon-4:00 p.m. and Monday, September 7 from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. On Sunday only, kids 16 and under receive free admission.
Sauder Village is offering free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families through Labor Day 2015. As a Blue Star Museum, Sauder Village is one of more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to military personnel and their families this summer in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense.
At the Barn Restaurant, a special Holiday Brunch will be served on Monday, September 7 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. This brunch has become a family tradition in the community with great choices like made-to-order omelets, waffles, crepes and pancakes; pork loin, biscuits and gravy, Barn Chicken, home fries, fresh fruit, pastries and a chocolate fountain.
For those looking to extend their stay, overnight accommodations are available at Sauder Village. While the Campground is booked for the Holiday Weekend, rooms are still available at the Sauder Heritage Inn. Guests feel right at home in the 98 room Heritage Inn complete with indoor pool and hot tub, game and exercise room – all adjacent to the “Great Oak Tree”.
