Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, which is why most people prefer to reminisce about the future instead. Rediscover human's oft forgotten past with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a family four-pack of one-day admissions to historic Sauder Village in Archbold (up to a $58 value). Children aged 16 and under receive free admission on Sundays, and children 5 and under are always free. The village is closed on Mondays (except holidays).
Historic Sauder Village immerses time-travelers in the pastoral world of 19th- and early 20th-century America. A step inside reveals the village's costumed, experienced artisans, who practice authentic old-time trades such as tinsmithing, pottery, and hedge-fund management. Villagers stroll through a serene settlement of genuine 19th-century buildings transported from across northwestern Ohio, each flanked by fields of heirloom vegetables and aromatic, fresh-baked bread. The recently completed Pioneer Settlement draws visitors into the everyday edifices of antiquity, including homes, a school, jail, and more. Pioneers can hark back to the heyday of the superfluous "e" at the sweet shoppe or sate their craving for frozen treats at the ice-cream parlor. The Barn Restaurant, converted from a Civil Warera barn, fortifies starving settlers with a variety of lunch and dinner fare.
For a tangible taste of native antiques and artifacts, the on-site museum beckons visitors with more than a thousand automobiles, household appliances, toys, and other items from antiquity. Pilgrims hoping to bring home a piece of the past can stop by the Threads of Tradition quilt shop, which houses more than 3,500 bolts of assorted fabrics. Sauder Village's hours and activities change with the seasons and the town crier's horoscopes; a full list of hours and dates is available on its website.
Sauder Village offers discounts for certain people online, but this Groupon still provides the best deal for four admissions.
