The Wood County Historical Center and Museum is a fascinating place, with an air of quiet tragedy and somber mystery. Originally the Wood County poorhouse, pestilence house for TB and scarlet fever, and an “Insane Farm” (the 1800s version of a mental institution), the Museum grounds are a dark reminder of the past. Showcasing this troubled history, the WCHM and grounds will host a Folklore Trick or Treat Tour Friday night. Explore the cemetery and historic hospital for fortune telling, carnival games and folk songs by the campfire.
