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.
