ARCHBOLD, OH (WTOL) - Sauder Village in Archbold is Ohio's largest living history destination.
A new addition was unveiled on Saturday, a 1920s Main Street community.
They like to say here that it's sometimes the simple things in life that are memorable.
A visit is a walk through time from 1803-1928.
It's a history lesson you can take at your own pace.
"We are who we are because of the people who made a life here in the wilderness, Black Swamp. As the trains came around farming became more of a common business," said Debbie Sauder David of Sauder Village.
The Main Street Plaza features a beautiful clock and a classic community bandstand.
The original Elmira, Ohio Depot has been renovated and relocated, ready to serve as a stop on the nearby Erie Express Train.
It showcases the important role the rail system played in Ohio beginning in the 1850s.
"I think it was the centerpiece for a town. It was a special building. It was a place where views could be exchanged," said Gary Frisen, who works at the depot.
Next door to the depot is a replica of the Okuley Barber shop in Continental, Ohio.
Everything inside, including the barber chairs, comes from the original shop.
It was a place to grab a cigar and a bath after a smoky, sooty train ride into town.
"If there was a salesman looking for a place to clean up they came to the barber shop for a bath, haircut, shave and shampoo," said Ron Hausch, a real life barber working in West Unity.
Like any Main Street, growth is expected.
Sauder Village hopes to expand it in the coming years.
