About the event

On Saturday, September 7th, the Hancock Historical Museum will host the 7th Historic Barn Tour in Hancock County.

The self-guided tour will feature historic barns, dating from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s around the county. Each barn tells a unique story about the farm on which it sits, and the families who have owned it. In addition to learning more about these impressive structures, guests to the tour will enjoy a wide array of activities, including antique machinery and blacksmithing demonstrations, local food vendors, timber-framing and hewing demonstrations, and live music.

The Hancock Historical Museum’s Historic Barn Tour was awarded the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office’s Public Education & Awareness Award for preservation excellence. Ohio History Connection CEO, Burt Logan, has recognized the Historic Barn Tour as a “model program for the state.” In 2018, the Historic Barn Tour was honored to be a recipient of the Scenic Ohio Award.

Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning August 1st. Tickets will also be available at any of the barns on the day of the tour. Children 16 and under are free.
