The museum is now open to the public on Thursdays between 1 and 4 p.m. (May through October). It will also be open for an hour before and after each event and by appointment. For a tour, please call us at 269-683-4540 or email us at There is no charge for tours.

Thank you for your support of this project. Work is currently being done in the upper level over the museum to re-enforce the structural integrity of the building. The north and south walls are still connected by five supporting cables, while 4" x 6" posts are being set from floor to rafters every six feet to add support. A new floor, insulation, and interior walls will be added as funds allow.
