Summit County Bucket List: Coalville Courthouse

We finally got around to visiting the historic Coalville Courthouse. It’s this beautiful sandstone building right on Main Street that houses a museum in the basement. AND IT’S FREEEEE!

ImageWe got there mid-morning and we were the only people visiting so we had the place to ourselves.



Each room or section of the museum is staged to look like a particular area or room of a house back when Coalville was first settled. All the artifacts and histories were donated by members of the community. The kids loved the room that was staged as a shop – complete with bar stools, a crazy-old register and a shelf full of old glass jars with vintage labels.


On the way out, we ran into a friend of ours that works in the courthouse (she has this super swanky office with huge windows) and she offered to take a picture of all of us in front of the courthouse. All of us? In a picture? Like, together?

ImageThat’s good enough for me.
