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.


The Wakeman Archival Research Center will be open by appointment through April, and depending on weather conditions and availability of staff, the archives will be open on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Look for the “open” flag on the front of the building. Located upstairs at Wakeman Hall 401 Farnsworth Rd., the archives are staffed by Waterville Historical Society volunteers and contain records of Waterville organizations, business, churches, schools, cemeteries, etc., as well as family files and local history. Admission is free. Call (419)878-3425 or (419) 878-2576 for more information or to make an appointment.
