Heritage Sylvania is now the keeper of the Historical Society archives. 

Since the formation of the first archives in the early 1970s, we have been collecting and preserving the memories of our community's past.

Today, the Sylvania Archives is quite literally a treasure trove of community and regional history documenting both the big events and also the wonderful daily happenings of community residents. From high school year books to family photos, community newspapers to old photos of businesses, we have a wealth of resources for the serious researcher, the family genealogist or the curious history enthusiast.

Our staff is eager to help you with your questions! Our archivists are usually in Tuesdays from 10:00 – 1:00 PM. For more information or to schedule an appointment please contact us, or call 419-517-5533.
