In 1976, the Menominee County Historical Society acquired the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church for use as a heritage museum to house priceless artifacts and photographs from Menominee County’s illuminating history.
Today, visitors can tour this well-preserved building to experience the beautiful and informative displays our hard-working curator keeps updated. You’ll learn about the lives of fur traders, immigrants, loggers, Menominee Indians, and other fascinating people who came before us.
Our museum is open to the public, but we ask that you please consider a free-will donation to help offset the cost of operating expenses. Regardless, we’d be delighted if you stopped by, and even have a small gift shop, should you want a souvenir to remember the occasion.
