Archbold, OH – On Saturday, October 18 all residents of Fulton County will receive free admission to Historic Sauder Village for Fulton County Appreciation/Community Health Day – sponsored by the Fulton County Health Center. Have fun in the past with your family and Fulton County neighbors while visiting more than 40 historic homes and shops, trying hands-on activities, visiting with health & safety professionals, and creating special memories at Sauder Village!
“We truly appreciate the support we have received from our local communities since the Village opened in 1976 and we look forward to having many Fulton County residents join us for this special day at Sauder Village,” shared Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations. “In addition to receiving free admission on October 18, guests can also enjoy the extra activities taking place for our annual Community Health Day at Sauder Village!”
On Saturday, October 18 from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. all Fulton County residents will receive free admission to Historic Sauder Village. Please be prepared to present a drivers license or other form of identification to verify county residency.
“We realize that many Fulton County residents have not been to Sauder Village since they came on a field trip or brought their children many years ago,” shared Jeanette Smith, Director of Sales & Marketing. “We are offering free admission to Fulton County residents not only as a way to say thank you, but also to encourage people to visit and see all the changes that have taken place over the years.”
On this special day, there will be many hands-on opportunities for guests to enjoy as well as extra activities planned for Community Health Day including informational displays, health screenings, finger printing, rescue vehicles displays, door prizes and much more!
Throughout the day guests can experience the daily lives of our ancestors while visiting with costumed guides in historic homes, farms and gardens, and community shops. Guests will also enjoy watching the many craftsmen at work in the Village including the glassblower, potter, blacksmith, weaver, spinner and many others! This will be a great opportunity for Fulton County residents to visit Natives and Newcomers and explore Pioneer Settlement. Families with young children will enjoy spending time at Little Pioneers Homestead where they can “play pioneer” as they gather eggs, milk the fiberglass cow and play in the log cabin.
“Many people in our region don’t realize that Sauder Village is Ohio’s largest living history destination,” shared Smith. “Each year Sauder Village welcomes nearly 100,000 guests with even more people dining at the Barn Restaurant, staying at the Inn and Campground or enjoying our many retail shops.”
Some of the other special events planned this fall at Sauder Village include the Woodcarver’s Show & Sale October 25 and 26. Reservations are also being taken for the always-popular Holiday Lantern Tours to be held November 29, December 5, 6, 12 and 13.
