Olmsted Historical Society - Frostville Museum
Preserving the Past and the Present for the Future
Frostville Museum is a living history of 19th century Ohio in our own back yard. We are located at 24101 Cedar Point Road, North Olmsted Ohio 44070 at the corner of Cedar Point and Lewis Roads in the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation. Our goal is to preserve and display 19th century Ohio History. Voice messages may be left on our voice mail at 216.501.3345.
The museum is open from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm every Saturday and for special events listed on our Events Page to the right. A printable version of our Events is available on that page.
The museum consists of eight buildings: the Prechtel House (which is the only home original to this site), Jenkins's Cabin, the Briggs' House, the Carpenter House, the Gifford General Store, the Wensink Display Barn, the Events Barn (while the Events Barn has a kitchen, the space is not available for rentals), the Frostville Village Church (formerly the Barton Road Church) and the Stearns Carriage House which is now the restroom facility. Check our History link to the right for more details on how Frostville was named.
The Olmsted Historical Society, which manages Frostville Museum, has over 100 members contributing time, labor and craftsmanship. With the help of the volunteers, we maintain the buildings, the grounds and even the restoration of the buildings. During planned events, many members dress in period attire giving the feel of the 1800's.
Throughout the year we hold a number of activities. All of our events are family friendly. We encourage you to stop down, enjoy the activities, bring a picnic lunch or buy from our vendors. We offer fun in the outdoors and you might even learn something about our history.
Tours for schools, scouts and other organized groups are available by reservation any day of the week from May through October. The Frostville Village Church is available to rent for weddings. Contact Cindy Lentz at 440.476.5552 for contract information or by email at: Frostvillecindy@gmail.com.
If you are interested in becoming a member or volunteering your time, please fill out a membership form at the Membership Form link to the right and mail it to Olmsted Historical Society, P.O. Box 38144, Olmsted Falls, OH 44138.
