 Members, Friends and Buckeye Lake History Fans,

The days that we are experiencing right now makes us full of doubt as to what our futures will become. It is a rough time and at the same time, we wonder what is ahead. 

As you know history shows us other difficult times our Nation has had to face. We read about them now in old newspapers or Internet searches. How did our fellow Americans get through it? Stories from our grandparents and parents, told us about the difficulties they faced in

their lives.

One thing we do know for sure…. they lived to tell us the stories. They lived through it to write things down and smile, as their world as they knew it changed. We will live through this as well. Our lives will return, and we will have to adjust to things that happened to us, our loved ones and friends with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hold tight to your beliefs and convictions. Do as we are instructed by medical people that are more schooled on this then you or me. Stay at Home. If you go out for special needs, keep your hands and face covered and, by all means wash your hands! 

The Museum is closed for now. We will re-open when it is safe for us to be with one another again. Be kind to yourself and others and take a deep breath now and then.

In 2018 the Museum followed the idea of a Night Picnic at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes followed the methods used in the picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. The menu was a Fish Fry and pretended to be at another time and place, the Buckeye Lake Amusement Park.

As of January 2019 there have been 55,212  visitors to the museum, since our opening day in 1998. Come visit the Rocket Ship, play Skee Ball or look over thousands of items from the early to mid 1900's.​ Tuesday-Sunday 1 to 4, Closed Mondays.

Our Society was founded at Buckeye Lake, Ohio in 1995 and the museum opened in 1998. Please stop in and view our huge collection of Buckeye Lake Park memorabilia. Our group covers Perry, Licking and Fairfield counties including the communities of Hebron, Millersport and Thornville, along with Buckeye Lake.
