The Village of Fredericktown enjoys a very rich background in history. The Society has preserved many of the links to the past for your enjoyment and understanding.
Fredericktown, Ohio was founded in 1807 by John Kerr as a site for a mill. It was named after Frederick, Maryland, as was the custom of many early pioneer towns. Many fascinating books and articles of the past are available at the museum. Please feel free to stop in and view some of the material we have preserved to help generations understand how far we have come.
Many smaller area villages like Ankenytown, Waterford, and Batemantown have displays in the museum for your enjoyment. Many wonderful items are displayed for you to see.
