About Us

The Kidron Community Historical Society is located in the village of Kidron in Wayne County, Ohio. We collect, research, preserve, and display the available historical material, including relics, documents and books, connected with the history of the Kidron-Sonnenberg area of Ohio. We maintain a nationally acclaimed historical museum, the Kidron-Sonnenberg Heritage Center, on the square in Kidron, Ohio (across from Lehman’s Hardware store). A large genealogical computer database and research library is available to patrons in the museum, with a focus on Amish and Mennonite ancestry.

We also developed the 5-acre Sonneberg Village located just north of Kidron along Hackett Rd. where we maintain and preserve historical buildings and implemented sustainable living methods that feature the use of renewable energy, green building technology, and sustainable gardening and landscaping techniques.
