Mission Statement

The mission of the Lake County Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and tell the story of Lake County’s history through museum exhibits, historic sites, collections, educational programs and book publishing.

To achieve this mission the Lake County Historical Society will:
  • Actively engage in the collection of artifacts, manuscripts, photographs, oral histories and historic sites relating to the history of the region. These will be cared for to the best ability of the organization.
  • Operate museum facilities and historic sites and develop life-long learning opportunities for area residents and visitors.
  • Operate in a fiscally prudent manner to ensure the survival of the organization, its collections and future needs. Broad-based, stable financial sources will be explored and developed to assist in this matter.
