Current Exhibit (2021-2022)
Discover the culinary culture of Westerville with an immersive exhibit experience. Learn about how distinctive practices and values surrounding food and drink have coexisted, sometimes peacefully and sometimes with hostility.
Delve into the diverse food traditions that have resulted from the city’s growth in the past 70 years - from the opening of the Kyoto Tea House in the 1950s to the establishment of a food pantry in 1972 to the addition of international restaurants in the 1990s and 2000s.
Cross over a replica of the tea house’s famed red bridge, take a seat at Corbin’s Saloon, and hear from Westerville residents and business owners themselves via diary entries, video interviews, and more.
