The 1799 birthplace cabin and boyhood home of William Bebb, 19th Governor of Ohio, is the centerpiece of the Pioneer Village. Joining the Bebb cabin are six other authentic log cabins moved to the park and reconstructed to form a representative early Midwestern settlement. An 1850 covered bridge, one of two remaining covered bridges in the county, was moved from the Oxford area and rebuilt at the park entrance in 1970. The Pioneer Village serves as a site for MetroParks educational programs and events.
