The Living History Tour is a "must-do" while in Roscoe!

If you have wondered what life was like in a 19th century town nestled along the Ohio and Erie Canal, we invite you to travel back in time to see for yourself.  This year marks the bicentennial of Caldersburg (Old Roscoe -- 1816) which includes a new experience called "The People . . . Our Stories."  As you visit costumed interpreters in our living history buildings, you will learn about some notable people whose lives and deeds of the past contributed to what Roscoe Village is today.

What do our visitors say?

 Historic Roscoe Village Ohio - Living History Tour Blacksmith

“Fascinating Historical Gem of Ohio”  How wonderful that this little gem, Roscoe Village, has been lovingly restored. It is fascinating to learn about this part of Ohio's history. The canal used to run right along side Roscoe Village where Route 16 is now. All but one of the buildings is original to the site. Visiting was definitely a day well spent.
