Historic Retreat

Historic RetreatGlimpses of history can be found everywhere – sometimes when you least expect it!

From old photos in local establishments, to the establishments themselves, bask in an era long gone.

The village of Zoar is home to the Ohio History Connection’s site, featuring museums in the original Zoar Society buildings. Tour these and the public garden in the center of the historic district for a look at how the village founders lived their communal life.

Historic Zoar VillageGuided tours are available from April through October when you stop at the Zoar Store. Or visit the village during Harvest Festival (August) or Christmas in Zoar (December) for period demonstrations, crafters and entertainment.

Zoar is unique in the fact that many of the historic buildings from the 1800’s are private residences and businesses. Antique shops, a chandlery, primitives, a cannery and bed & breakfasts call Zoar home.

Visit Zoar Community Association (site manager) for information and local events.
