Liverpool Township Historical Society

Welcome to the official site of the Liverpool Township, Medina County, Ohio, Historical Society. Contact us at 330 483 3707, or mail to PO Box 399, Valley City, OH 44280.

The Liverpool Township Historical Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Depot unless otherwise listed. New members and those interested are always welcome.

The Depot Museum is at 6615 Center Road in downtown Valley City, next to the Rocky River. It is home to our Society. It is open one Sunday a month, May through October. You are welcome to come browse and ask questions about early days. We can do a look-up to see if your ancestors are buried in Liverpool cemeteries and find the obituary, if one was published. The caboose and steam engine are open.

The Society was started in 1976. Its purpose is to advance public education of local history through collecting, cataloging, and preserving artifacts and folklore that is related to the history of Liverpool Township, Medina County, Ohio. The artifacts are housed in the township-owned Depot Museum.

It was a very active group of volunteers for some time. As these things sometimes happen, members lost interest and activities dwindled.
Then came the 2010 Bicentennial and its terrific celebration. Now that the dust has settled, a renewed interest is kindled. There is fresh blood plus some veterans. A new Constitution and By-laws have been approved. And we have achieved 501(C)(3) non profit status.

Liverpool Township residents are encouraged to donate items of interest to the community. Also anyone who is interested in our history is encouraged to join. Membership is ongoing and everyone will be most welcome. For more information, please call Della Dangelo, President, at 330-483-3707.
