About the Historical Society

The Hilliard Ohio Historical Society and Museum was incorporated November 11, 1966.  The society’s main objective was to create a historical village and museum which would preserve the early pioneer life of the community of Hilliard, Ohio and the northwest section of Franklin County.  The society was given a lease of a part of Weaver Park on which to build a museum and establish a historical village. The Hilliard Ohio Historical Society is a non-profit, 501©(3) organization which relies heavily on private contributions to supplement public funds.  Through the generosity of individuals, local area businesses, grants and fund raising the society is able to maintain the upkeep and restoration of the numerous exhibits and buildings in the historical village.
