Historical Organizations Merge to Create Heritage Sylvania

After a unanimous vote, the new merger called Heritage Sylvania became official on January 1, combining three historical organizations: The Sylvania Area Historical Society, The Friends of the Lathrop House, and the Sylvania Historical Village. The three organizations decided to join forces rather than compete because many visitors associated them as one entity already. Through this merger facilitated by Creative Oxygen, Heritage Sylvania will be a stronger organization that is even better equipped to deal with challenges than before. Programs, tours, archives, Lathrop House, Historical Village, and the Heritage Center Museum will now fall under the umbrella of Heritage Sylvania.
