Thanks to everyone's tireless restoration efforts, The Cedarville Area Historical Society moved into its new home, the 1889 Cedarville School, in May 2005. It is located on Second Street west of Mill Street, at the top of the hill.
Established in 1975, the historical society contains a permanent exhibit about Jane Addams's early years in Cedarville and has many artifacts from the period before she moved to Chicago to establish Hull-House with her friend Ellen Gates Starr. The museum also features a changing exhibit.
