2007 Arrow Award Honoree

Tod Swormstedt, former editor and publisher of Signs of the Times magazine, wanted to capture the history, technology, commerce, and culture of our communities’ signs before they were lost forever, and so he founded the National Signs of the Times Museum in 1999 as his self-proclaimed mid-life crisis project. With the help of a few early believers, the renamed American Sign Museum opened its doors in Spring 2005.

Soon after, Tod began looking for a permanent home that could accommodate the Museum’s collection – which was already outgrowing its rented space – and his vision for a more interactive experience. His search ended at a former women’s clothing and later parachute factory in Camp Washington, a historic and ready-to-bloom-again area of Cincinnati.

Tod Swormstedt is now President and Founder of the American Sign Museum.
