Acknowledging the Past, Embracing the Present, Preparing for the Future

The Scott County Historical Society is an active organization that operates a museum and archives with a mission to preserve, interpret and research the rich history and diverse cultural heritage of Scott County.

The museum features rotating exhibits related to Scott County and cares for a wide range of 15,000 objects and an extensive collection of more than 40,000 historic photographs.  The archives, which includes maps, newspapers, town histories and vital records, is a valuable research facility that is open to the public.  We also offer a dynamic schedule of on-site and outreach programs that are informative and fun for a variety of audiences.

Your donation, in any amount, will help SCHS continue to adequately care for the collection and present lively exhibits while providing engaging educational programs and unique learning opportunities for Scott County residents and visitors.
