Kent Historical Society
The Kent Historical Society strives to tell the story of Kent's history from it's earliest days up to the recent past by collecting historic artifacts, photographs and oral histories from residents.
The society is best known for the restoration of the Old Erie Depot, the city's first fully functional train depot, which now is home to the Pufferbelly restaurant -- one of Kent's most popular restaurants.
The current museum, the Clapp-Woodward House, was purchased in late 2010 and renovated in early 2011 to create a permanent home for the society. Admission to the museum is free.
