The Museum & Welcome Center opened on May 5, 2018 and is a starting point for exploring and discovering Fulton County, Ohio's natural, cultural and historical resources. The museum structure, which is a recreation of the first county courthouse, honors the pioneer families of the county by telling their stories (including the famous race car driver Barney Oldfield).
The motto, "Find your way, or make your own way" becomes part of the entertaining, informative, and interactive journey of exploration through the museum's permanent and special exhibition galleries.
Our mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret artifacts and written records pertaining to Fulton County. The Fulton County Historical Society uniquely provides to a diverse audience, access to experience Fulton County's local cultural history through a research facility, programs, demonstrations, and exhibits at its various sites.
