Hoover Historical Center is located on Walsh University's north campus inside Hoover Park, original Hoover family farmland. The story of the Hoover legacy, a name known around the globe, is preserved and shared here. Tours begin in primitive 1840s building where docents brief visitors on family history and original business of tanning. The evolution of cleaning devices is displayed here with inter-actives for visitors - manual sweepers from the mid-late 1800s and early 1900s. Hoover history continues in the family's Victorian home with the first 1908 Hoover vacuum through the 2008 Hoover 100th Anniversary line. Elegance abound with Victorian d├ęcor, furnishings and ladies' fashions which complement the history. War memorabilia, Hoover songs, ads, plant histories and more!
