Taking Photographs at the Historical Village

Professional/Commercial Photographers – The Historical Village is located on the Weaver Park which is owned by the city of Hilliard.  The Historical Buildings, Museum and Gazebo are private property owned by the Hilliard Ohio Historical Society.  The Society is a non-profit organization that maintains the buildings with donated funds and many hours of volunteer work.  The interior of the buildings can be used for commercial photography at a rate of $50/hour for each building.  Please contact the Society office to schedule an appointment to further discuss availability.  This will help maintain the facilities for your future use.

If your content will be licensed for commercial use, the image/clip is taken on private property, or is taken on public property but features distinctive private property, a property release is required.   Thank you.

Non-Professional Photographers – Please feel free to use the park and exterior of the buildings to take pictures of your family and friends.  There is no fee for non-commercial use of the buildings.
