Sauder Village’s New 1920s Main Street Makes Its Debut

Make the past part of your future this summer with a visit to Sauder Village...a fun place to slow down, unplug, and spend quality time with family.

The Sauder Village experience moves guests from the modern, fast-paced life into a world that celebrates unforgettable sights, sounds, and memories from the past.

New this year, guests can visit the 1920s Main Street at Sauder Village. This one-of-a-kind project replicates a portion of a 1920s Main Street typical to Northwest Ohio. Guests visiting early this summer will be among the first to explore buildings on the east side of Main Street including the Farmers and Merchants Bank, Schuck Jewelry Store, Stotzer Hardware, Ohio Farm Bureau Office, and the Livery. By later this summer additional buildings along the west side of Main Street will open, offering guests an opportunity to stop by the theater to take a peek at what’s playing on the big screen, explore a grocery store, and sip a cherry phosphate at the soda fountain. Guests can see the latest fashions at the dry goods store, buy sweet treats at the candy store, and have fun exploring the fire station, and even a speakeasy. The “Roaring Twenties” will come to life through personal stories, authentic reproduction buildings, and historic artifacts.

Sauder Village is located at 22611 State Route 2 in Archbold – just minutes from Exit 25 of the Ohio Turnpike. The Historic Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. The Village is closed on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays this season. Admission is $20.00 for adults, $14.00 for students (6-16), and free for members and children 5 and under.
