“"Dry Capital of the World!"”
In 1909, the Anti-Saloon League of America, a prominent national temperance organization, moved its headquarters and printing operation to Westerville, earning for the town the title "Dry Capital of the World." The museum traces the history of the movement and its effect on Westerville, the country and the world. From 1893 to 1933, the Anti-Saloon League was a major force in American politics. Influencing the United States through the printed word and lobbying, it turned a moral crusade into a Constitutional amendment. The League left a legacy of printed material at a site bequeathed to the Westerville Public Library which houses the Anti-Saloon League Museum. The Westerville Public Library, in an effort to preserve and share the League's story, has established this web site with financial help from a grant provided by the State Library of Ohio. Beth Weinhardt, Local History Coordinator, selected and organized the documents, images and publications and wrote the supporting text. The material presented here is protected by copyright.
