New Signage - DCHS Office - Delaware County Historical Society - Delaware Ohio

Delaware County Historical Society Office – The society’s business office occupies the walk-out basement of the Meeker Home. The office shares parking with Turkey Hill market.

In 2016, the Delaware County Historical Society took possession of the property, donated to the society in 2010. Since that time, there has been no permanent sign identifying the Meeker Museum or the Barn at Stratford.

The Society’s Facilities Committee, along with Barn Manager Connie Hoffman, took on the project of defining the signs needed. The Society’s Board readily approved the new signage project.

Visitors to our Facebook page who saw a photo of the new sign commented: “nice”, “classy” and “a milestone indeed”.  Venue Manager Connie Hoffman reports that “visitors who have stopped by noticed it and love it.”

Delaware County Historical Society Executive Director, Donna Meyer says “This project has been several years in the works. Our board and the Venue and Facilities committees are very pleased to see the finished product. These signs are very important to direct visitors to our historic buildings in Stratford.”
