Background

The Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Home was founded in 1886 with assistance from leaders in Sandusky, Ohio and the Grand Army of the Republic. Later, in 1979, the name was officially changed to the Ohio Veterans Home. The Home has served veterans from all branches of the military from the Civil War to the present conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere.
