Garst Museum

Located on North Broadway, this museum was built in 1852 as an inn for railroad passengers. Displays include relics of the Indian Wars, pioneer artifacts, Annie Oakley's prizes and mementos, and the Lowell Thomas room. Thomas, a pioneer of broadcast journalism, was born in nearby Woodington; his early home has been moved to the museum grounds. A painting by Howard Chandler Christy depicts the signing of the 1795 Treaty of Greenville. A research library and the Lowell Thomas House are also on the grounds.
