Bowling Green in Wood County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Wood County Museum
Once serving the county's poor, elderly, and disabled, the Wood County Infirmary transitioned into the Wood County Home, or what locals referred to as the nursing home, around 1920. After the site closed in 1971, the remaining residents were moved to the newly constructed Wood County Nursing Home, known today as Wood Haven Health Care. The Wood County Historical Society officially dedicated this site the Wood County Historical Center & Museum on September 12, 1976. Today the site is known as the Wood County Museum.
The Wood County Board of County Commissioners are designated as the rightful owners of museum buildings and grounds and are the appointing authority
