Thank you for visiting our new website.  The County Line Historical Society of Wayne/Holmes in Shreve, Ohio, was formed in 1996-97 to promote interest in past and present history of the communities of Big Prairie, Centerville, Lakeville, Millbrook, Moreland, Nashville, the Village of Shreve, and the townships of Clinton, Franklin, Lake, Plain, Ripley and Washington in Wayne, Holmes and Ashland counties; and also, to promote greater appreciation of our heritage and broaden the education and participation in the communities of this area. The Society hopes to preserve as much historical and genealogical material as possible and has both permanent exhibits and feature collections.

While our web site is still being developed, please be advised that our Museum, located at 281 North Market Street, Shreve, is open on the second Saturday of each month, 12:00 noon to 3:00 P.M.  Admission  is: $2.00 for adults, children under 12 are free.  Free parking is available on Saturdays at Shreve Mobil, PNC Bank and downtown parking lots.  Handicap parking is availble at the rear of the museum, by entering off W. Robinson St. and onto the alley and left behind the Museum.  Admission is free to members in good standing of the Society.
