Arts & Museums
The Hocking Hills region has a rich history connecting the area to the Civil War, coal mining, moonshining and World War II. The Fairfield Heritage Association Museums include the birthplace of the Civil War legend, General William Tecumseh Sherman. The Hocking Hills Historical Society & Museum Complex in Historic Downtown Logan also celebrates the region's heritage with an exhibit honoring WWII veterans and the WWII transport ship, the USS Hocking.
