Walkerton Heritage Museum

At the Walkerton Heritage Museum, you will find exhibits, photographs, memorabilia from local businesses, and many other interesting artifacts. Our collection of photographs shows local businesses, farming, schools, area township schools, sports teams, town and school bands, street scenes, railroads, grain elevators, churches, and other images from the past. You may read or listen to oral histories telling about life in the Walkerton area in earlier times. Some memories are written on paper, others are on audio tape.

We have a Microfilm Reader/Printer and microfilm of Walkerton (1886-1996) newspapers and North Liberty (1912-1962) newspapers. Admission to the museum is free, but donations are always accepted. For more information email us at walkertonmuseum@gmail.com or call 574-586-3868.

In 1997, the Heritage Room Museum was opened at the Walkerton Library. The house at 413 Michigan St. was donated by Dr. and Mrs. Elliott Frash to be used as a museum by the Walkerton Area Historical Society. The house was built in 1885 and was used by Dr. Frash in his profession for 38 years. The Heritage House was the museum’s home until August of 2022. We are now located at 302 Roosevelt Road in Walkerton in the old BMV, donated by Larry and Janet Hiler.

We will be open special hours on November 12th, 2022 from 10 am -5 pm.

For the rest of November 2022 we will be open:

Fridays and Saturdays: 12pm to 4pm

Wednesday evenings: 5:30pm to 7:30pm

We will be closed December 2022 and January 2023 and will reopen Friday February 3, 2023.
