Heritage Village

Heritage Village

11450 Lebanon Road
Sharonville, OH 45241



Located in Sharon Woods Park in Sharonville, the recreated village is situated in a natural setting where visitors can glimpse the sights, smells and have a variety of social interactions related to our history. The Village is a recreated 1800’s community featuring a dozen historic buildings that were saved form destruction and moved to their present location.

The village which includes homes, a train depot, doctor's office, barn and a church, helps recreate small town life in Ohio from the mid to late 1800s. It is operated by the Historic Southwest Ohio (HSO) organization dedicated to preserving some of our state's historic traditions and lifestyles. Volunteers provide guided tours of the village and help coordinate the many special events held throughout the year.

One of the oldest houses built in Cincinnati still standing, is the Kemper Log House. This 2-story log house built in 1804 by Rev. James Kemper, was originally located in Walnut Hills of Cincinnati. The Kemper family occupied the home until 1897. In 1912, the house was moved to the Cincinnati Zoo, then in 1981 the house was disassembled and relocated to Heritage Village. The stone kitchen demonstrates the open hearth cooking technique commonly used through the country prior to the introduction of the iron stove.
