Ohio Veterans Home
In 1886, the Ohio General Assembly authorized the creation of the Ohio Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home at Sandusky, Ohio. On November 19, 1888, the first seventeen Civil War veterans arrived there. As the United States became involved in other conflicts, the Ohio Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home admitted honorably discharged veterans from the Mexican Border War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Persian Gulf War. We will tour their fine museum as well as enjoy a heart-warming dinner with veterans from across the wars on Wednesday evening.
