About  the Museum

The Wabash County Museum is proud to be the keeper of history, an ever-evolving place to engage, explore, and to learn from the past, present and future of our county and beyond. ​We use state-of-the-art exhibits and engaging programming to introduce guests to the rich history of this one-of-a-kind county.

From the Miami and Potawatomi tribes who lived here, to the treaty that opened the area up for transportation  allowing the development of the Wabash-Erie Canal and the Big Four Railroad, to the many innovative people who have built and led world-impacting businesses, and more, the Museum provides a look at history that is both global and personal.

Annually, the Museum welcomes thousands of members, guests, tourists, and school children through our doors.  


The Wabash County Museum is a not-for-profit, operating entirely through

memberships, admissions, and private donations.
