Archbold, OH – Make plans for a memorable Labor Day Weekend with a fun-filled trip to Sauder Village! A time-honored, family get-away 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, PR/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 1910 Homestead, 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.
Guests are sure to appreciate the updates to the exterior of the Grist Mill as well as the rearrangement of interior furnishings and new displays to help share the important stories associated with the mill. Located in the lobby of the Museum Building, the “Grain: From Field to Flour” Exhibit presents a more in-depth look at grains while offering some hands-on learning as well. There is a new “Cereal Exhibit” in the Museum Building as well. With support from the Ohio Humanities Council, an agriculture-themed lecture series has also been planned for the 2014 season. The final lecture in the series will be held on Monday, October 6 at 7:30 p.m at the Heritage Inn. Joe Anderson from Mount Royal University in Alberta, Canada will present “The Vacant Chair on the Farm: Understanding Marriage, Farm Management and Soldiering in the Midwest during the American Civil War.” More information about the lecture series can be found online at www.saudervillage.org
Historic Sauder Village will be open Saturday, Sunday and Monday for the holiday weekend. Hours are Saturday, August 30 from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Sunday from noon-4:00 p.m. and Monday, September 1 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 2014. 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.
“It is an honor for Sauder Village to be involved with the Blue Star Museums Program again this summer,” Krieger added. “We look forward to having many active duty military personnel and their families join us this season to create special memories while having fun in the past at Sauder Village!”
At the Barn Restaurant, a special Holiday Brunch will be served on Monday, September 1 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.
