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

If you have ever 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 at Historic Roscoe Village to see for yourself.  This year marks the bicentennial of Caldersburg (Old Roscoe -- 1816) which includes "The People . . . Our Stories"  themed living history tour.  As you visit the costumed interpreters in our Living History Buildings, you may learn about some notable people whose lives and deeds of the past contributed to what Roscoe Village is today as well as about everyday life during the Canal Era.

 

Roscoe Village Family Fun Activities

  • Tour the Living History Exhibit Buildings to see a glimpse of everyday life along the canal in early Roscoe
  • Relax in the Visitor Center Theater and watch the Ditches of Destiny Video, a 20-minute movie that tells the story of the rise and fall of Ohio canals
  • Explore the Main floor of the Visitor Center and view the detailed dioramas, maps and models of the canal and lock system, models of a working lock and aqueduct and grist mill.

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.
