Pioneer Village

A 501(c)(3) non profit organization devoted to the development, growth and preservation of the Pioneer Village. Our mission is to educate the public and develop a base of appreciation for local history while providing opportunity for recreation and family enjoyment.


Pioneer Village

The Pioneer Village is located in Beaver Creek State Park, Columbiana County, Ohio 8 miles north of East Liverpool, Ohio; easily accessible from State Route 11 and State Route 7. The park is open from dawn to dusk all year. The village buildings are open to the public weekends between May 1 through October 31.

There are ten structures that represent Ohio history from its early pioneer days to the Victorian period. Center pieces of the village are a restored 1830s water powered grist mill and Sandy & Beaver canal lock #36. Ohio’s pioneer days are represented by log buildings that include; blacksmith shop, chapel, school house, cabin, and trading post.

The remainder of the village has a relocated 1870s covered bridge and the original 1875 William's homestead barn.

A fire, of unknown origins, destroyed the Blanche Williams home the evening of July 23, 2013. The area had been blanketed with thunderstorms overnight, including lightning, and there has been some speculation that the metal roof of the home may have taken a lightning strike.
