Know Before You Go

Sauder Village is now open in the Historic Village.  Our guests, employees, and volunteers are what makes Sauder Village the extraordinary place it is, and their well-being is our top priority. Sauder Village is working with the local health department and following state guidelines for social distancing, face coverings, and sanitation to allow for a pleasant guest experience.

Beginning July 23 citizens in Ohio counties will be under a mandatory mask order while out in public.  For the safety of our staff & guests, we are now requiring face coverings to be worn at the Historic Village while entering any historic building or indoor venue (face coverings are required while walking outdoors when social distancing is not possible). Exceptions will be made for those with health and safety considerations and children under 10 years old.

Masks are required in indoor locations at the Barn Restaurant, Doughbox Bakery and Sauder Heritage Inn.      

 In addition, the following do not need to wear a mask:

  • Those with a medical condition or a disability or those communicating with someone with a disability
  • Those who are actively eating or drinking
