Oberlin Heritage Center / O.H.I.O.
Three historical homes comprise the Oberlin Heritage Center. Visitors to the community are encouraged to explore the many points of historic interest including its historic downtown and the two historic homes and schoolhouse offered by the Oberlin Heritage Center.
Martin Luther King Park
East Vine Street
Three monuments stand in MLK Park. The first monument was erected for the three Oberlin men killed as a result of John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry. Another monument pays tribute to the Wellington-Oberlin rescuers and a third is a unique monument to Martin Luther King, Jr.
Here lie former slaves, famous abolitionists, and many who have become known as Oberlin’s faces of change.
Wright Park Soldiers Monument
Built in 1943 and including an 1871 Civil War Memorial.
The history of Oberlin involvement as a key stop on the Underground Railroad is evident throughout the community. However, the Underground Railroad tribute statue located at the corner of West College and South Professor is an excellent conclusion to any day in Oberlin.
