Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum

Museum in Logan

Who collects pencil sharpeners? Rev Paul Johnson of Carbon Hill, Ohio, did for nearly 20 years, and his eccentric collection of thousands – America’s largest – is on display in a dedicated shed at the Hocking Hills Welcome Center in Logan.

You’ll find US presidents, Mickeys, panda bears, the Eiffel Tower, skateboards, a monster that belches... The oldest dates from 1906, and the rarest is probably the World Trade Center.
