About Us

To inspire children, connect families, and create community engagement through an appreciation of local history and culture that focuses on research, education, and quality of life interests.  

Our Mission

We strive to be a living, breathing exploration center for local history - not a “graveyard for old stuff." 

The Wabash County Historical Museum uses state-of-the-art exhibits to introduce you to the rich history of this one of a kind county.

From the Miami and Potawatomi tribes who lived here, to the development of the Wabash-Erie Canal and the Big Four Railroad, to the many innovative and talented people who inhabit the county, the Museum provides a look at history that is both global and personal.

Annually, the Museum welcomes over 20,000 guests and school visits from throughout Northeast Indiana. 


The Wabash County Historical Museum is a not-for-profit, as it operates entirely on admissions and private donations.
