The Bremen Area Historical Society cordially invites you to come, discover the unique history and rich cultural heritage of Bremen by visiting the Bremen Area Historical Society Museum, a fully accessible historical museum, located within the quaint village of Bremen, Ohio.  The museum pays homage to the area’s past history and chronicles materials for future generations.  The 100% volunteer museum staff invite all to come to our museum and experience our local history through a myriad of exhibits, numerous displays, and a wide array of programing.

Current Projects and Upcoming Exhibitions

The Bremen Historical Society, a one hundred percent volunteer organization, strives to make our visitors feel more like they are enjoying a  stroll down Memory Lane with dear old friends than sauntering through a museum.  We hand pick artifacts for each exhibit that allow our visitors to totally connect with their own past and recall their own stories as well as learn about never seen before objects.  We love that sparkle that our visitors get when they see something from their own past or recount their own memories. 
We are currently seeking those who are interested in being part of the Fairfield County Quilted Barn Trail!  If you are interested in learning more about being a part of this county wide inititve, please email
