What Do Our Visitors Say?

Roscoe Village takes you right back in time with cobblestone sidewalks and a number of period buildings, which you can tour after paying a small admission. The living history tour includes costumed [interpreters], which guide you through fully restored rooms. The tour can easily take up an entire morning and afternoon. While it is a great excursion for school-age children, I found it to be entertaining and educational for adults as well. I also learned a lot about the history of trade canals and their operation in Ohio after viewing a short film at the information center and a riding in the horse-drawn canal boat.
