WELCOME TO HISTORIC ZOAR VILLAGE

Zoar Village was founded in 1817 by a group of 200 German Separatists seeking escape from religious persecution in their homeland. These Separatists thrived as a unique Society for more than 80 years, making Zoar Village one of the most successful communal settlements in American history.

Today, Zoar Village is made up of approximately 75 families living in homes built from 1817 to the present. Visit us to tour the museums, see early American architecture and enjoy the quaint village scenery. Start planning your visit today!
