About Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society Museum
The Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society Museum is housed in the former Carnegie Library which opened during 1916 in Pickeringtons original historic village. It is one of the few Carnegie-financed buildings that exist in Central Ohio. The Museum contains hundreds of local artifacts including collections of Native American weapons and tools crafted and used during the Archaic period. Also featured in the Museum are a pot-bellied stove and other items from Violet Township's one-room schools; an early Pickerington Village town pump; a restored 1879 Taber pump organ; and children-friendly "touch and learn" exhibits. The Historical Society Museum is open for self-guided touring on Second Saturdays -- April thru November -- from 10:00am to 1:00pm. In addition, a history-related program is presented from 1:00 to 3:00pm on those Second Saturdays. Admission to both the Museum and programs is free. The upper level of the 2-story building is accessible by wheelchair lift during Museum hours for all guests unable to negotiate the stairs. Group tours can be arranged outside normal hours. Volunteer hosts are always available to answer questions. After your visit, take a leisurely stroll around historic Pickerington via an "Olde Pickerington Village Self-Guided Walking Tour". Brochures are available inside and outside the Museum.
