Legacy Projects

Norton Bicentennial Park (Trail Head)

This proposed park is located just north of the Sandusky River on the east side of Sandusky Ave. This will serve as the trail head for a bicycle/walk path connecting Sandusky Ave to Harmon Field and the BAY Soccer fields. Included in the Norton Park will be: a resting area, a dog park, parking for food trucks, and playground equipment. The project will also move the existing Norton monument to the new park from its current position on the south-west side of the Sandusky River. This inviting space will entice those headed to the lake to stop in Bucyrus and see just what we are all about.

Bicentennial Archways

To commemorate the Bucyrus Bicentennial, 1821-2021, the “Bicentennial” Arches will be built. One will be located just north of the Sandusky River, and the other will be located just south of Charles Street. The effect will be to highlight or bookend the Norton Family, Bucyrus’s founders.

True Meridian Marker and Time Capsule

In 1884, a Prime Meridian marker was placed in Oakwood Cemetery. Its composition is of sandstone and has deteriorated significantly. By restoring and preserving the current marker (not moving it) with a durable stone, we will ensure the marker will last until 3021 when the new time capsule will be opened.


The Bicentennial Website will continue to be maintained to keep the community updated on the progress of Legacy projects, promote Bucyrus’s past, as well as the Historical Society and the Preservation Society.

Park Improvements

Bucyrus is fortunate to have a great park system that has entertained and at times provided a safe haven for many children. These parks house many community amenities, including: a swimming pool, baseball and softball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, playscapes, Frisbee golf, and much more. It’s time to update and upgrade.
