Who We Are

Remarkable families.
Long-standing businesses.
Worldwide contributions.

​It’s no wonder that Bexley boasts families that have resided here for generations.  Nestled among its charming tree-lined streets have lived entrepreneurs, explorers, artists, and more.

Founded in 1974, the Bexley Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes interest and pride in the history of Bexley, Ohio, and the accomplishments of its citizens and institutions. It seeks to educate the community by assembling, researching, publishing, preserving, and interpreting a valuable collection of memorabilia, photographs, genealogical records, and other information associated with Bexley’s heritage.
