The Washboard Festival in Logan, OH is a fun little festival to attend. Lots of good food, entertainment & friendly people. The auction they hold to raise money has quality items. Rides for the kids are free!

was interested in seeing some sights besides just the hocking hills state park. decided to stop here as it a part of history. we arrived after almost everyone left for the day but where allowed to walk around on our own. owner is really nice and the staff we meet were very friendly. we did pick out a washboard to take home. It would be neat to see them make them if you can arrive when a tour time is.

We were greeted by a nice lady behind the desk who offered to let us view the factory. Everyone was nice and friendly. You can purchase a variety of washboards for washing cloths or playing as musical instruments they also have a large array of soaps. This is an interesting place to visit and see. Glad we stopped.

After a few days of hiking we were looking for something a little educational for our kids to see before heading out of town. We were too late for the guided tour, but still were able to walk around the factory and the lady working was so kind to show us how they make the washboards. We enjoyed visiting with the owner of the company and hearing about his journey from London. Although we won't use a washboard ourselves, our kids were excited to buy a mini washboard as a souvenir and enjoyed checking out some of the soaps from london that they sell in their gift shop. This "made in the usa" company has an excellent program for sending washboards overseas to military people and we enjoyed reading some of the letters on display from the people who have received them. Be sure to stop!

What a great experience! We missed the tour but were allowed a quick peek in the back. We got talking to the owner, an Englishman who loves his new country and this area of Ohio. This is the only washboard factory in the Americas and business is good. They sell to mother earth folks, musicians and they ship washboard kits to servicemen and women all over. I felt good to support them and to be an American.
