Historical Museum

IMG_8384.JPG

Calling all history buffs! The Fort Recovery Historical Museum is packed full of more than 225 years of history dating back to before the Village of Fort Recovery ever existed!

Built in 1938 by the Works Progress Administration, the museum building first housed the local library and numerous artifacts from the local area. In the 1970s it became the Fort Recovery State Museum. The museum features Anthony Wayne's legionnaires and a typical Native American from the 1790s. Life size mannequins show an officer & artillerymen operating a Howitzer cannon (left), an infantryman making use of the stockade, and a dragoon complete with his horse. Information and maps explain both the Harmar and St. Clair campaigns along with a detailed explanation of Wayne's campaign and the construction of the fort. The original flagstaff from the fort as well as many artifacts from the 1790 campaigns are proudly displayed. Fort Recovery was a pivotal point on IMG_8397.JPGthe Greenville Treaty Line. A print of the signing of the treaty is shown along with the original stake used to mark the treaty line. Portraits of the battles as depicted by historian and author Robert VanTrees and portraits of Wayne, St. Clair, Little Turtle, Blue Jacket, and Buckongahelas adorn the walls. Visit the balcony to see a large display of prehistoric artifacts found in the local area. Artifacts date back to 14,000 years B.C. Available in the gift shop are books, maps, postcards and other items relevant to Fort Recovery along with other souvenirs.
