The Welsh American Heritage Museum
The Welsh American Heritage Museum (former Welsh Congressional Church), located on East Main Street in Oak Hill, is the center of Welsh programs and activities in southeastern Ohio. The museum is the only one of its kind in the United States and houses Welsh books, bibles, documents, pictures, and a fine collection of other Welsh items.
The objectives of the museum are to foster Welsh family ties throughout the world, to collect and preserve records, artifacts, books, photographs, etc. of Welsh families in a museum setting, to keep the Welsh culture and traditions alive in the area, and to preserve for all time the old Welsh Congregational Church building.
The Welsh-American Heritage Museum not only strives to keep Welsh traditions alive, it also continues to be a link with the land of the Red Dragon with visits and programs between people here and people in Wales. News of the happenings at the museum are printed in the Welsh Newsletter, Ninnau, which is read in both Wales and the United States.
