On Saturday, August 15, Sauder Village will celebrate the completion of a new addition with the opening of the west side of the 1920s Main Street. The Roaring Twenties will come to life as guests explore a theater, candy shop, fire station, soda fountain, clothing/dry goods store and more.

The 1920s Main Street is part of the Walk Through Time experience at Sauder Village, located in Archbold, Ohio. The project replicates a portion of a 1920s Main Street typical to Northwest Ohio. At this permanent addition to Sauder Village, guests can see how people worked and spent their hard-earned leisure time during the 1920s. Shops opening on the west side of Main Street include Fire Station #1, Wiederkehr Clothing, Hub Grocery Store, and theater. Guests will also enjoy exploring the new soda fountain/pharmacy, Main Street Confections, and The Broken Barrel Speakeasy (open for special events/experiences only).

In addition to the new buildings on the west side of Main Street, families also will enjoy experiencing the 1920s at shops along the Main Street’s east side including the depot, Okuley Barbershop, Stotzer Hardware Store, Farmers & Merchants State Bank, and many others.

While at Sauder Village, guests will also enjoy a free train ride, meeting farm animals, and taking a “Walk Through Time” to experience life in Ohio from 1803 through the 1920s. There also are many gardens, craft shops, and unique shopping opportunities throughout the village.

Sauder Village is located at 22611 State Route 2 in Archbold. The Historic Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.  (Closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays this season.) Admission is $20 for adults, $14 for students (6-16), and free for members and children 5 and under. For more information, go to
