What is Robbins Crossing?

Robbins Crossing is a pioneer village located on Robbins Road 

21314812_404382526625237_7599857786180489074_n

on the Hocking College campus. Built in the '80s, Robbins Crossing contains some original log cabins that were built by settlers in the 1850s. Donated by local landowners, the cabins were carefully dismantled and then reassembled at Robbins Crossing.

In addition to the log cabins, this attraction contains a blacksmith shop, a cooper shop, a doctor’s cabin, and a one-room school house. On weekends costumed interpreters recreate what it was like to be part of a pioneer community in southeastern Ohio during the 19th Century. Robbins Crossing is also available for private parties and catering events.

When is Robbins Crossing Open?

Robbins Crossing is open to the public every weekend between Memorial Day and the end of October from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
