Ely-Winton Historical Society

A nonprofit organization

The mission of the Ely-Winton Historical Society is to identify, collect and preserve artifacts, photographs, documents, and other articles relating to the Ely-Winton area, and to share information about the history and culture of the local area through public display of relics and evidence of history.  The Society maintains a museum and historical research center and sells publications about local history. As a non-profit organization, the Society relies upon grants and donations from the public for its continued operation.

The Ely-Winton History Museum desires to help you understand the land in which we live and what it offered to the people who lived here.  A community arose as people from diverse backgrounds came here to make a living and fulfill their dreams. The museum interprets what these people experienced in this land, what they strove for, how they coped with problems, what they achieved, and what they have passed down to their descendants.  Using photographs, maps, dioramas, and artifacts, the displays present the different phases of local history from prehistoric to the present day.
