This is a small town gem. Beautifully presented & guide was very knowledgeable. A must see. If you've located here, home of Marathon & Cooper Tire, this gives a great insight of Findlay Ohios past.

The Hancock Historical Museum is a good place to see at least once if you are from the area or had family here. A nice selection of Findlay items, small gift shop, and they rotate displays so it is different every time we go.

The museum is bigger than expected, make sure to visit all the buildings. It is a great place to host a meeting, e.g. the Findlay Young Professionals had a beer and appetizer social at the museum.
