“see mid-19th century life is depicted through dozens of historic structures”

Located in the Cuyahoga Valley near Bath, Ohio, is an outdoor living history museum and a premier collection and property of Western Reserve Historical Society. Daily mid-19th century life is depicted through dozens of historic structures, farm animals, heritage gardens, cooking demonstrations, and demonstrations of Early American craft and trades. Northeastern Ohio’s cultural roots begin with the native American populations who first inhabited the area some 10,000 years ago.  In 1662 the area became part of the colony of Connecticut whose royal charter granted it a swath of land extending across the continent to the Pacific Ocean.   After the formation of the United States, Connecticut ceded most of its western lands to the national government but  exempted  approximately 3,400,000 acres lying north of latitude 41 degrees and extending 120 miles westward from the Pennsylvania border.  This became its Western Reserve.   In 1795 it sold most of this land to a group of investors who had formed the Connecticut Land Company and in the following year the company began the survey of the land to prepare it for sale.  The survey party was led by Moses Cleaveland, the namesake of Cleveland, Ohio.

We used to go here on field trips as kids all the time. I never particularly enjoyed it as a kid, but you can see cool reenactments and glass blowing. Very good historical/education visit.
