Ohio Herb education center

Didja know that Gahanna was declared the Herb Capital of Ohio by the state legislature in 1972?

The Ohio Herb Education Center is located in the City of Gahanna — the Herb Capital of Ohio — just east of downtown Columbus and adjacent to Port Columbus International Airport in the heart of Gahanna. 

The Nafzger-Miller house, in which the Herb Center is located, is listed in the National Register of Historical Places with the original structure being built in 1855 and additions made to the home in 1910. The center includes a gift shop, parlor and kitchen and is used for classes, parties, meetings and rentals.

The Ohio Herb Education Center provides diverse herbal education programs, events and products. The center is listed in the State of Ohio Division of Travel and Tourism’s Discover Ohio in Bloom brochure and is a frequent destination for tours and the general public.

Ohio Herb Education Center is available 7 days a week for private tours. Please call the center for details about tours, classes, and rentals – 614.342.4380.
