Living History Tours

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. 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?

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 actors, 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.
