Historic Barn Tour

September 10 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In October 2014, the Hancock Historical Museum’s Historic Barn Tour was awarded the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office’s Public Education & Awareness Award for preservation excellence. Ohio History Connection CEO, Burt Logan, has recognized the Historic Barn Tour as a “model program for the state.” In 2018, the Historic Barn Tour was honored to be a recipient of the Scenic Ohio Award. The annual Scenic Awards program recognizes and honors Ohio’s scenic places as well as the organizations and agencies making contributions to the improvement, conservation and preservation of our scenic resources. Now on a biennial schedule, we are proud to present the 2022 Historic Barn Tour!

The self-guided tour will feature historic barns on the west side of Hancock County. Each barn tells a unique story about the farm on which it sits, and the families who have owned it. In addition to learning more about these impressive structures, guests to the tour will enjoy a wide array of activities, including antique machinery and blacksmithing demonstrations, local food vendors, timber-framing and hewing demonstrations, and live music. Learn about the history of these unique structures while enjoying the sights, tastes, and sounds of our county’s legacy.

Pre-sale tickets will be available in August at the Hancock Historical Museum and sponsor locations. You can also purchase tickets online. Tickets will also be available at any of the barns on the day of the tour for $10 for members, $15 nonmembers. Children 16 and under are free.
