OHIO HISTORY CENTER AND OHIO VILL AGE | C O L U M B U S A photo shoot at Ohio Village is a step back to the 1890s, as visitors have their picture snapped dressed in period costumes, surrounded by props from that era. It's one of many ways the historic site engages its guests in 19th-century Ohio life. Visitors can also deliver speeches from a stage in the replica of town hall, sit atop a high-wheel bicycle, chat with costumed town residents and play with old-fashioned toys like stilts. The affiliated Ohio History Center offers more traditional exhibits that examine the Buckeye State's past, covering topics such as the state's ancient Native American heritage, natural history and 1950s pop culture. STAN HY WET HALL AND GARDENS | A K R O N Lose yourself in one of the largest homes in America at the 65-room Stan Hywet Hall. Built in 1915 by Hywet, founder of the Goodyear Rubber Co., the Tutor Revival home resembles an English country manor, complete with elegant Old World gardens. Organized tours highlight the 70-acre site's enormous house, manicured gardens and greenhouse. Guides point out the house's intricate paneling, innovative built-in vacuum system and 37-station intercom system. HISTORIC SAUDER VILL AGE | A R C H B O L D Historic Sauder Village, the state's largest living history site, connects guests with Ohio's hardworking past. The village, set atop an area once called the Black Swamp, educates groups about rural life in the 19th-century through guided tours, demonstrations and work- ing craftsman.
