Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum


Rev. Paul A. Johnson's collection of 3,400 pencil sharpeners---reportedly the world’s largest---started as a hobby and ended up as 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.
