When are you open? We have an Open House the third Saturday of the month from January through November. Our open house hours are 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We participate in Christmas-on-the-Town during December, which falls on the date advertised by the Reynoldsburg Community Association. We also open upon request for special events, private tours, genealogy classes, Alumni celebration walk-throughs, calligraphy classes, chalkboard sign-painting classes, school tours, etc.

Why aren’t you open daily? Our facility is maintained entirely by volunteers. They donate their time. We are open only the third Saturday of the month January through November, because we don’t have enough local volunteers to man a three-building facility on a daily or weekly basis.
