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

Founded in 1991, the all- volunteer Sylvania Area Historical Society worked tirelessly to preserve and protect the history of our region.  They amassed a collection of thousands of items large and small.

It 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 or Saturdays (March through December) from 1:00 – 4:00 PM.  For more information or to schedule an appointment please submit a contact or program form, or call 419-517-5533.

Do you have an item you are interested in donating?  Contact us at the number  or email above.  Our collections committee will gladly consider your items and will respond in a timely fashion!
