The Huntsburg Historical Society (HHS) will be open to the public on the third Saturday of each month, except December, from noon until 4 p.m. and at other times by request. During the Huntsburg Pumpkin Festival, more than 1,000 individuals visited the museum. T-shirts and sweatshirts were sold and are still available for purchase with the proceeds used to maintain the displays and other collections managed by the HHS.

Recent donations include a Huntsburg baseball jersey and Ohio State caps from the Ishee family. One of our members, Jean Taylor, donated display cases. A quilt was donated by the Chagrin Valley Quilters for next year’s Pumpkin Festival raffle. Anyone with items about Huntsburg is welcome to attend a meeting to speak to the officers about donating or loaning to the Museum. The next meeting will be held at the Huntsburg Community Center on Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. Members and non-members are invited to attend. Contact for more information and visit
