Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum

Description

Paul Johnson's collection of 3,300 pencil sharpeners---reportedly the world’s largest---started as a hobby and ended up the basis for the Pencil Sharpener Museum. Sharpeners date from the mid-19th-century and include early electric versions as well as manual, novelty types in the shape of cars, landmark buildings, and, well, you name it.

The tidy glass-enclosed display is housed in a small building right outside the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center, where you can get more information on the museum and the surrounding area, sit beside a recreated waterwheel, or wander along the Tallgrass Prairie Footpath. The open-air Trek Theater, showcasing storytellers and bluegrass bands on Saturday evenings in summer, is also nearby.
