Van Wert Lodge has been around for over 100 years. We have been in our present location since 2004.

The lodge has a nice patio which is off the lounge and offers a nice place to relax during the summer months.

Van Wert boasts the annual Peony Festival the fist weekend in June and the annual Rib Fest in August. We are also home to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center which provides exceptional entertainment for all ages.
