Waterville Historical Society

your connection to the past

The Waterville Historical Society collects, preserves, provides access to, interprets and fosters an appreciation of history that has an impact on the Waterville, Ohio and surrounding area.

Wakeman Archival Research Center

The Center, located upstairs at 401 Farnsworth Road, contains records of Waterville organizations, businesses, churches, schools, etc., as well as family files and local history. The public may inspect them free of charge and a volunteer archivist from the Waterville Historical Society will help with the research. No item may be removed from the Archives, but copies may be made for a small fee. Donations of similar documents and photographs are welcome or may be copied and added to the files with the originals returned.

The Wakeman Archives is open from 10-2 every Wednesday during the months of April through October. We are also open the last Saturday of the months from April through October from 10-2 except on Roche de Boeuf Festival. Beginning November 1 through March the Wakeman Archival Research Center will be open from 10-12 or by appointment, depending on weather conditions and availability of staff. Look for the "Open" flag on the front of the building. Located upstairs at Wakeman Hall, 401 Farnsworth Road, the archives is staffed by Waterville Historical Society volunteers.  Admission is free.
