We are experiencing an unprecedented public health crisis. Being proactive in stemming the spread of COVID-19 is critical. In response to Governor Mike DeWine’s orders closing all K-12 schools and prohibiting mass gatherings, Ohio History Connection's historic site and museum system across Ohio will close effective Saturday, March 14.
This decision was not made lightly. The scientific evidence that early social distancing can help stop the spread of the virus is a compelling factor in taking this precautionary step on behalf of our community during this pandemic.
While students are home from school during this time, we have made our educational resources available online at
We will continue to follow guidelines provided by our local, county and state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You can get the most up-to-date information via

The Ohio Historical Society offers wonderful programs aligned to standards as well as encouraging the students to use critical thinking to come to conclusions. They are entertaining as well as informational.

Excellent realistic presentation and interaction. Thought-provoking. Our Seniors loved it! The presentation came over as factual,informational and entertaining. Appropriate for engaging our assisted living residents.

Without a doubt - this is the BEST video conference I have ever done. Extremely interactive and well-organized.
