"Preserving Tiffin's Architectural Heritage"
“Our mission is to promote preservation in Tiffin by meetings, publications, tours and educational initiatives in the community and to develop a plan for restoration of our local architectural landmarks.”
The Tiffin Historic Trust, Inc.'s headquarters are located in the Grammes- Brown House, located on 172 Jefferson Street, Tiffin, OH 44883. The elegant, nine-room Second Empire home was erected in 1884 by a local confectioner and baker, Peter Grammes. Fire woodwork, antiques, treasures and collections belonging to three generations fill the Victorian-Era house.
The property was donated to Tiffin Historic Trust, Inc. by the late Rosina Brown, granddaughter of the home's builder.
Tours include the Grammes Brown House and garden, and the attached Old Victorian Carriage House.

Join us for our annual Holiday House Tour as part of the program during Tiffin Winterfest and Victorian Weeknd. Among the carriage rides, Christmas caroling, tree decorating, meeting Santa and numerous parties, tour six historic homes and enjoy wonderful displays of Christmas decorations, various architectural styles and unique design elements!
The homes are clustered in typical small-town neighborhoods and represent both grand and more modest styles representative of the Victorian era and later. Just past downtown, the houses on Sycamore Street include an 1880 Second Empire home and a late 1890’s frame house with Queen Ann and Revival features. Nearby is a modern condominium in the Friedman Village. The Northeast Historic District includes an American Bungalow home, while just across the railroad tracks is a beautifully restored red brick Victorian.
The tour begins at the Grammes-Brown House on Jefferson Street, where tickets can be purchased on the day of the tour. The renovated headquarters of the Tiffin Historic Trust features natural woodwork, Arts and Crafts dining room cabinets, and Victorian style wallpapers. On display are the everyday furnishings, family photos and items used by a Victorian family. Replicas of local homes and buildings, and notecards will be available for purchase. Those who buy their tickets in advance can choose the starting point.
