Sandstone Living History Museum Center

The Sandstone Living History Museum Center is a six-acre historic site located in Amherst, Ohio. It was developed by the Amherst Historical Society, a nonprofit organization, to preserve and interpret the unique heritage of sandstone quarrying in the area, and the Industrial Revolution of the 1800s. The center is a rapidly growing complex that has a number of old buildings spared from destruction. It also conducts programs intended to educate local schools and the community about the region's history. A blacksmith’s shop was the first reconstructed building on the grounds. The site features a rare wooden water tower once used by Cleveland Quarries, a car barn, caboose and auto barn. An old-time gas station is home to a 1925 Chevy stake-side truck, a Ford Jubilee tractor, and an 1898 Oldsmobile. The gas station also serves as a gift shop.
