Experience Millersburg Ohio
The Village of Millersburg Ohio wasn't established in its current location until 1865. It is just south east of what was referred to as the Old Town.
This Old Town was originaly laid out in November of 1815 by Adam Johnson and Charles Miller of Coshocton County.
A plat was filed for the New Town in April of 1824. After becoming the County Seat of Holmes County the
city began to prosper.
Noted now for its Victorian architecture, unique shops, antique stores,
a historic hotel
and a beautiful Victorian mansion-turned-museum,
the city and its surrounding area is well worth the visit.
It is located at the intersections of State Route 39, State Route 83, State Route 241 and US 62 as a hub in the center of Holmes County.
Victorian House Museum
The Victorian House Museum is owned and operated by the Holmes County Historical Society, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There is a charge for admission.
We visited the mansion when it was decorated for Christmas. Every year local businesses, civic organizations and even private individuals volunteer to decorate the different rooms. The house is open for tours during the holidays from the end of November through the 31st of December.
Upon entering the museum, we received an introduction about the mansion's amazing history from a volunteer staff member who was quite knowledgeable. From there, it's a leisurely self-guided tour through the three floors and basement.
There are 28 rooms in Queen Anne Victorian style that are furnished with antiques from the local citizens. The restored original floors, woodwork and wall coverings are beyond description. When you visit, don't miss the sauna - and be sure to ask why the front door is called a funeral door!
Millersburg Ohio Listings
It is a little confusing at times to distinguish just where some of the listings are actually located geographically. A number of businesses may have a Millersburg Ohio address but are really much closer to Berlin.
The way the corporation limits of the two cities are drawn and the size of their populations apparently causes this unusual delineation. So, we have placed a number of the listings in both city sections.
