The Wood County Historical Center & Museum is the site of the former County Infirmary, which operated from 1869-1971. The building was repurposed into a Museum, which re-opened in 1975. The Historical Center has public events throughout the year and the Museum is open daily with a feature exhibit on Wood County's role in WWI.
