      Sauders Farm and Craft Village is located on Route 2 in Archbold, Ohio. It is a living history museum. This Museum is unique in that it has a lot of live demonstrations on how things were done in the old days.

      You can watch as corn is ground into corn meal and then buy some. You can use the machinery to wind and attach the materials to make a corn broom with


      instruction from a professional craftsman.

      They have live demonstrations on how to make lye soap, weave, quilt, spin yarn, basket weave and many other crafts that are mostly mechanized today. You can walk around an old 1910 homestead and see a house in which a Mennonite family lived with some of their personal effects on display.

      Among the many shops are a tin and copper shop with live demonstrations and then a ...


      • gift shop if you would like to purchase some of their wares. They have a bakery and a restaurant, a farm machinery museum to display some of the old tractors that were once used.

        They offer a chance for you to experience life as it was a hundred years ago. I have been here a couple of times.

        They are always upgrading the place and adding new things. I like talking

        to the employee’s who dress in period costumes and can provide valuable insight to the way things were.

        My kids favorite thing was making a corn broom. They were impressed by all the work it takes to make an old fashioned corn broom.

        I want to go back to see the new children’s area that was being added since I was there the last time. I never get board revisiting part of our nations history.
