Overview

Founded by an adventurer and named for a Revolutionary War hero, Van Wert County has seen plenty of excitement since 1821. The transformation from Native American camps and swampland to thriving farms and businesses happened rapidly. Vintage postcards printed between the 1870s and 1950s capture moments of work and leisure, civic pride, and private celebration. Take a look at life in the ever-evolving county seat, and then stroll down the main streets of the communities that have contributed so much to history. Take time to smell the peonies and to reminisce about the Van Wert County Fair that has delighted fairgoers since 1856. In these vintage postcards from Convoy, Delphos, Middlepoint, Scott, Van Wert, Venedocia, Willshire, and Wren, readers can enjoy a glimpse of the past and perhaps even a look at some old friends.
