About Us

The John P. Parker Historical Society, Inc was founded in 1996 to recognize, commemorate and preserve the extraordinary legacy of John P. Parker and his remarkable family.

With grants from the Ohio Arts Council, Ohio Humanities Council, National Park Service, National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Trust for Historic Preservation the house was stabilized, public programs were planned and presented, an archaeological investigation of the property was conducted and a well-researched and documented interpretative educational program was conceptualized.

Professionally designed exhibits will depict and communicate the historical context in which Parker and his courageous contemporaries influenced and shaped the history of the mid Ohio Valley.
