The Koester House Museum, nestled in the heart of downtown Marysville, is an excellent place to take a look at life in a Midwestern town before the turn of the century. Built by an early banking family, it is still luxuriously furnished with the Koester belongings, including family portraits, clothing, toys and books, furniture and household items. It has been renovated carefully since the 1970's and opened to the public through the generosity of the Koester heirs, who made it a gift to the City of Marysville in 1972.

Surrounded by a brick wall with cast iron lions and dogs guarding the gates, the grounds are nearly as interesting as the house. The gardens, summer kitchen, ice house, wood house and 12 white bronze statues make a stroll through this family’s yard an experience to remember.

Open April-October daily.
