    Sauder Woodworking is one of the largest put it together 'yourself' furniture companies. On the south side of Archbold is the company factory and the outlet store. You'll find good quality furniture at a fraction of the price of ready made furnture.

    HISTORY
    In 1934, Erie Sauder started a woodworking business in a barn behind his Archbold, Ohio home. Originally building custom cabinets and church pews, he began crafting small tables from what he called “leftovers.” Not wanting to waste scraps from expensive fine woods, the frugal businessman began producing inexpensive occasional tables. In 1940, these tables caught the attention of a traveling salesman who placed an order for 25,000 tables – a seemingly daunting quantity for the fledgling company.

    Sauder Village incorporates all that makes this part of Ohio unique. It started as a farm, which still stands as a museum to early farming. There is the village, with the shops, stores and village buildings that developed in this part of the U.S. Then there is the Indian village, in the grass prairies that dotted this region and finally, numerous craftsmen at work using skills from the 19th century to create useful and decorative home furnishings. There is a train ride, candy, ice cream and old fashion soda fountain. All from the generosity of one family, presevered for our children to enjoy.

    Hours: May-October, Tu-Sa 10a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sun noon-4 p.m.; Closed Mondays

    Full line sit-down farm meals. From Dinner to Supper. Full servings, home cooked, country fresh. On the farm, 'dinner' is the large meal at mid-day. Supper is any meal in the evening.

    Hours: M-Sa 11: a.m. - 8 p.m.; Sunday buffet, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. (3 p.m. in summer)

    Favorite Dish: Pot Roast and Fried Chicken. Yup, they have pot-roast and meat loaf on the menu. That's how you can tell a real country restaurant. Country food at it's best.
