Historical Society Museum
The Munroe Falls Historical Society Museum is located at 83 Munroe Falls Avenue within a 19th century home. The house was constructed by Owen Brown, father of American abolitionist John Brown, in 1853.
With exhibits on local history and a local history library and archives, the museum helps tell the many stories of Munroe Falls’ past. Our collections include historical photographs, family records, maps and memorabilia, as well as news clippings and artifacts like a:
Map of the proposed Munroe Falls settlement from 1838
Original plan for original Munroe Falls dam
Munroe Falls Manufacturing Company currency
200-year-old working weaving loom
The Munroe Falls Historical Society Museum library collection contains volumes pertaining to the history of Ohio including Summit County, Akron, Brimfield, Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Twinsburg, Northampton, Tallmadge, Stow and Munroe Falls.
On October 30, 1988, the Munroe Falls Historical Society collected contents for a time capsule to be opened October 2038. A plaque is located on the grounds near the museum entrance.
