We have been collecting since 1956 and therefore have an extensive collection of every type of item imaginable. With over 2,600 sq. ft. of collection space and more than 30,000 items in our database, we are a great starting point to any local research project. Our holdings consist of historic newspapers, maps, documentation, photographs, furniture, clothing and textiles, firearms, swords, and much much more. We are two years into a major reorganization and cataloging project on our collection. Our database and collections are constantly being updated with new listings and photographs so keep checking back or contact us for more immediate answers to your questions.
Enjoy a spin through our local history!
