Any room in either of the two historical houses, the Nash House or the Meeker Homestead may be adopted. Please contact the Delaware County Historical Society for availability and price.
For example and shown here is the Nash House dining room.
The Nash House remains much the same as it was when the young Slattery family first lived here in 1878. There have been the obvious electrical, heating and plumbing upgrades over the years, but the “bones” of the house remain original. The front porch was added after 1916 and a bathroom addition and a kitchen remodel were completed in the 1930’s. The house does show signs of normal wear and tear. If you look closely, you can see the scars in the doorways made by Linnie Nash’s wheelchair (Linnie was left an invalid after a severe bout with scarlet fever). The Nash House is furnished with period pieces and accessories donated to the Historical Society by Delaware County families. These furnishings and the reproduction wallpaper make the house a showcase of the Victorian period.

Thanks to the efforts of a Delaware County Historical Society volunteer, the Nash House Dining Room is well-appointed and marvelous in all seasons of the year but particularly lovely during the season of Christmas. The period decorations, including chair ribbons, are an inspiration for today’s host or hostess. The sideboard in the dining room is from the Schaub Tavern which operated ca 1850-1870. It was located where the current Delaware City Hall now sits at SE corner of William and Sandusky. The Schaub Tavern is indicated on the 1866 city map of Delaware.
