Bay Village Historical Society

About usFor 60 years, the Bay Village Historical Society has played an important role in protecting and preserving the historical representations that developed today’s community of Bay Village. Historic buildings, such as the Rose Hill Museum and Osborn Learning Center, are the iconic faces of Bay Village. Through exhibits, education programming, and museum tours, visitors are welcome to learn about local history and discover what makes our community unique in the world.Great changes occurred in the beginning of 2020 for the Historical Society. Our first hire, a Collections Manager and Curator, has already made wonderful changes to revamp the Museum and Learning Center. With assistance from our dedicated volunteers, new exhibits and educational programming are underway, making the Historical Society a stronger image within the community. With their tutelage, we are continuing to meet our goal in “Preserving the Character of our City.”During this COVID-19 pandemic, the Historical Society regrettably had to cancel the major fundraiser that provides the necessary yearly finances of maintaining the Rose Hill Museum and Osborn Learning Center, and keeping our employee on salary. Our goal is $10,000, and with your help, we can continue to inspire, educate, and preserve the cultural heritage of Bay Village.Please consider making a donation to sustain the Bay Village Historical Society in continuing to preserve our history, our identity, our culture, and our community. Your contribution will also allow the procurement of new visual materials and informational labels to re-vamp our existing showcases, providing fresh content on local history.As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, the Bay Village Historical Society’s funding comes from grants, fundraisers, and most importantly, from donors like you. The Historical Society advocates to save the many representations of our past. We could not do this work without you. We ask you to make a tax-deductible gift to our Society that enables us to continue in preserving this city’s treasures.
