Statehood Day

February 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join fellow history lovers at the Ohio Statehouse to commemorate Ohio’s birthday—and to advocate for Ohio History.

In commemoration of Ohio’s founding, we and our partners invite you to join a broad coalition of history advocates for our annual Statehood Day event. The state’s birthday serves as an appropriate time each year for history advocates to come together to help showcase the importance of Ohio’s history and how history, historic preservation and the organizations that help provide access to Ohio’s rich history benefit the Buckeye State. Statehood Day is a celebration of Ohio and its history, as well as a legislative advocacy event!
