Worthington Historical Society

The Worthington Historical Society is located in the Old Rectory, a structure that was originally built in 1845 at the Rectory for St. John’s Episcopal Church. The building now houses the WHS administrative offices, the Doll Museum and the Shop. After serving 15 rectors over 80 years on the Village Green, the Rectory was moved to Hartford Street and then moved again to its present location when the WHS acquired it. The Old Rectory is built in the classic Greek revival style with a later addition on the north side. The parlor has been elegantly restored to the Empire Period with a magnificent needlepoint rug on view.

The Shop and Doll Museum are open Tuesday – Friday, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Appointments can be made for research by emailing info@worthingtonhistory.org or calling 614-885-1247.
