Enter through the Rotary office building to begin your AuGlaize Village Experience! There you can view a SHORT overview of Ohio history and how the area emerged from an uninhabitable Great Black Swamp! This is also a good time to turn on your smart phone Wi-Fi and enjoy the free service provided by Metalink Technology! They generously donated all the equipment and much labor to bubble our entire facility. Want to know more about something you see at the Village? You can Google it! Thank you again Metalink!

The front half of AuGlaize Village is as you have usually experienced it. Modern day conveniences of a bathroom, a concession stand for modern foods and an ice cream parlor are all available for your comfort and enjoyment. Pass by the Mark Center Post Office and the Train Depot and the world will change as you are transported back to the late 1700’s!
Demonstrators living, cooking and behaving as you would have between 1750 and 1812!

No electricity or running water! It will make you appreciate your ancestors for sure!
