Welcome

The Kidron Community Historical Society is located in the village of Kidron in Wayne County, Ohio. We are dedicated to collecting, preserving and maintaining items of historical importance in the Kidron-Sonnenberg community that was settled here in 1819. We maintain a historical museum in downtown Kidron, the Kidron-Sonnenberg Heritage Center, with many items on display from the local community. A large genealogical database and research library is available in the museum, with a focus on Amish and Mennonite ancestry. We also operate the Sonnenberg Village on the outskirts of Kidron where we preserve historical buildings utilizing a sustainable living model that features renewable energy, green building technology, and sustainable gardening and landscape techniques.
