About Us

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 18,000 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. 

"We are not makers of history. We are made by history."

Martin Luther King, Jr.
