Here's a little about the Waterville Historical Society

Since 1964, the Waterville Historical Society has played an important role in our community. Over the years we have acquired the following properties:  the Robbins House, Sargent House and Cobbler Shop museums are located on our historic campus at 114-118 S. River Road and the Wakeman Archival Research Center is uptown at 401 Farnsworth Road.

Our many services and activities include:

·       Maintaining an archival collection for historic research and local genealogy

·       Offering free public programs on topics of area interest

·       Holding regular open houses for our historical museums and Wakeman Archival Research Center

·       Guiding walking tours of both the downtown and uptown historic areas

·       Participating in Roche de Boeuf Day and holding various community events

·       Hosting docent-led instruction in our museums and archaeological walking tours for Waterville third graders(based on Ohio 3rd grade Social Studies curriculum standards)
