Community History Displays

The Delaware County Historical Society has, for years, brought local history exhibits to the windows of local businesses. These Community History Displays bring the history of Delaware County Ohio to life with objects, documents, and images from the Society’s extensive collection.

Benny and Maggie work with our Susan Logan at the Cryder Research Library to assemble objects, information, and images. They often reach out to society members, friends, and area organizations for just the right elements to tell the story. Then the tableau is assembled inside the window as a Community History Display for the enjoyment and illumination of everyone that passes by.

The subjects for the History Displays run the gamut from Love for Valentines to The 1st Man on The Moon. The displays are changed every few months all year round.

Thank You to the businesses who provide the window space for the Community History Displays
