A Transformation in Eras at Ohio Village
This recreated town just outside of downtown Columbus is being transformed into a replication of 1890's life. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, the Village's 18 buildings and re-enactors bring to life an era filled with advances like recording music, photo albums and magazines. The pace of the news cycle and technological innovation quickened during the decade - a fitting parallel to today's lifestyle.
Vintage Letterpress Expands
The 600-year-old craft of printing takes center stage at Igloo Letterpress - a group tour favorite that has doubled its size in a move just across the street in Old Worthington. During the Art of Letterpress experience, groups hand-set antique wood and lead type, then take home a personalized greeting card.
