About Historic Zoar Village
Historic Zoar Village was founded by German Separatists in 1817 and thrived as a communal settlement for more than 80 years. Today, the village is home to approximately 75 families living in houses built from 1817 to present. Zoar’s historical district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was recently named one of America’s Top 11 Most Endangered Historic Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Dozens of village structures have been painstakingly preserved through the collaborative efforts of the Zoar Community Association and the Ohio Historical Society.
