The Warther Museum is dedicated to Ernest “Mooney” Warther, the world’s master carver. Learn about America’s unknown genius and how he lived his life and philosophies. We have guided tours that lead you through the museum and explain how he created the carvings as well as his life story. The Warther home is open to view as we took it back to the 1920s era to show you what their home would look like during that time. Browse through our gardens and check out the Button House where Freida, Mooney’s wife, collected and mounted over 73,000 buttons. Tours run continuously throughout the day and the last guided tour will begin around 3:45PM each day.
Details: The Temperance Tavern Museum was once a stopover for travellers on the Ohio & Erie Canal or on local stagecoach routes. Built in 1841, its displays include items from such famous native sons as baseball pitcher Cy Young and Ohio State Football Coach Woody Hayes.
