Archbold, OH – Memorial Day weekend historically marks the start of the summer vacation season. Families will be piling into minivans for a weekend get-away and Sauder Village is prepared to welcome guests from across the Midwest interested in making special memories together this holiday weekend.
“Sauder Village is a time-honored family get-away in the Midwest,” shared Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations specialist. “What was once considered a day-trip, however, is now a vacation destination. 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.”
Historic Sauder Village will be open Saturday, Sunday and Monday for the holiday weekend. Hours are Saturday, May 25 from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Sunday from noon-4:00 p.m. and Monday, May 27 from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.. Active military and their families (with valid military ID) as well as Veterans will receive free admission throughout the holiday weekend and on Sunday only, kids 16 and under receive free admission.

Recognized as Ohio’s largest living-history village, the 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. They’ll also enjoy a ride on the Erie Express Train or the horse and buggy.
New this year, Sauder Village will be hosting a special traveling exhibit of knitted Presidents in the Museum Building. The exhibit includes all forty-three men who have been President of the United States. These three-dimensional figures are surprisingly life-like with period clothing and include unique elements that represent their work, hobbies, events and activities. Created by the Knotty Knitters Club of California, this exhibit has won first prize at the California State Fair, had numerous television appearances and has been on display most recently in Chicago.
At the Barn Restaurant, a special Holiday Brunch will be served on Monday, May 27 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. With the personalized service and large selection, this holiday brunch is a great way to celebrate Memorial Day.
“With the unique packages offered at the Sauder Heritage Inn, we make planning a weekend get-away easy,” shared Kim. “Our Country Get-away Package is an affordable way to enjoy an overnight stay, a meal at the Barn Restaurant and a visit to Historic Sauder Village.”
