Ohio Antiques

Ohio Flag   As part of our mission to present quality objects from our material culture and to share our knowledge of the people who created them, the Bodenheimer-Mayer House features items that are known to have been produced within certain geographic areas. Elements from Ohio’s material culture are presented on this page.  Items attributed to a specific county are organized under the county name.  Items that are more broadly interpreted to be part of Ohio’s material culture are grouped together at the bottom of the page. Items currently available from ButlerFairfield,  Guernsey and Muskingum counties may be found by clicking on the county name.  Clicking here will take you to the photographs of items more generally classified as having been produced in Ohio.
