The Welsh-American Heritage Museum, located at 412 E. Main St. in Oak Hill, will be open during the summer months on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Anyone who has never visited the museum is encouraged to stop in and see the displays on Welsh history and culture in Gallia and Jackson counties.

From the time the first Welsh arrived in 1818 and until the mid-1840s, this area became known as “Little Cardiganshire” for the thousands of Welsh who settled here. The museum is filled with all types of memorabilia, photos, paintings, ceramics, family histories, and other objects that illustrate the importance of the Welsh settlement on the landscape of the area.

For other times, please phone ahead to schedule an appointment. Contact numbers are 740-418-5572, 740-441-7246, or 304-634-3971. On weekdays, you can contact the Madog Center for Welsh Studies on the campus of University of Rio Grande at 740-245-7186.
