The Maumee Valley Historical Society collects in areas relating the history and culture of the Maumee Valley. Explore the history of the Maumee Valley with us!

It’s spring and the Wolcott Heritage Center at 1035 River Rd. in Maumee is open and ready for visitors. You don’t want to miss this year’s special exhibit in the Wolcott House “Victoria’s Other Secrets.” This exhibit features “unmentionables” (Victorian Underpinnings), both originals and reproductions. Kathy Dowd, Curator for the Maumee Valley Historical Society is very excited to give visitors a little peek behind the boudoir door. See examples of garments that help answer the age-old question, “What really does lie beneath ALL those layers of ruffles, lace and finery?” Guided tours are available on Saturdays starting at 12:30pm and 2:30pm.
