The American Sign Museum, a not-for-profit 501(C) (3) corporation, was founded by Tod Swormstedt, former editor and publisher of Signs of the Times magazine, as his self-proclaimed mid-life crisis project. It began as an idea, with no collection. With the initial support of ST Media Group, publishers of Signs of the Times, and the Museum's Board of Trustees, it began to take shape. Support across the sign industry continued to expand, allowing the Museum to open its doors in Spring, 2005. It has grown to boast a collection of more than 4,000 cataloged objects, with new acquisitions arriving all the time. The Museum quickly began to outgrow it's leased home. An extensive search for just the right permanent home resulted in the purchase of an historic building in the Camp Washington area of Cincinnati. Thanks to generous donors - like you - 19,300 square feet of the building is undergoing a complete transformation and the new, permanent home of the American Sign Museum will open its doors in June, 2012. Mission: To inform and educate the general public, as well as business and special interest groups, about the history of the sign industry and its significant contribution to commerce and the American landscape."
