Arts & Museums
A historic house museum owned by the Crawford County Historical Society, this four-story home was once the residence of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice and two Meadville mayors. Exhibits, programs, publications, and special events are offered throughout the year. Tours are available from May through September.
Housed in a historic Colonial-style building, the Johnson-Shaw Stereoscopic Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits stereoscopic products, including documents, equipment and photography.
The John Brown Farm, Tannery & Museum is a tribute to the heroic efforts of John Brown who helped in the Pre-Civil War of Independence. The years 1825 to 1835 were greatly dominated by his unending support to the cause wherein his tannery and farm were also used. A visit here proves educational and also lets you slip back to the days of New Richmond's glorious past. A good time to visit would be May 9th when John was born, and when the entire town gathers to celebrate his legacy.
Situated in historic downtown Franklin, DeBence Antique Music World allows you to see and hear over 100 old-time automatic musical instruments, including calliopes, music boxes and nickelodeons.
