The research collection preserves documentary evidence that tells the story of the history of the village and the lives of its residents from the early 19th century to present day. It contains personal papers (diaries, letters, account books, and obituaries), records of businesses and industries (catalogs, advertising, and financial records), records of clubs and organizations (membership lists, programs, events, and correspondence), government records, information about churches, schools, cemeteries, and transportation, as well as maps, newspapers, and genealogies.

The non-circulating reference library contains books and pamphlets, some of which are out of print, concerning the history of Ohio, the Western Reserve, the village and neighboring towns and cities, as well as works by local authors.

The public is welcome to visit the Sihler Research Center to learn about village history, traditions and events, family history, and house history.
