Heritage House Museum

At the Heritage House 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 call Janet Rhodes at 574-586-2852 or email janrhodes@embarqmail.com.
