Located at the entrance of the City Park, the two story brick house was built in 1881 by Joseph and Mary Broeker Duerr, a local butcher and his wife. The Museum is home to the Perry County Historical Society.
The museum opened in May of 1990. Each room completes another phase. The rooms include areas of: children’s toys/supplies, kitchen, schools, books, churches, medical and many other treasures from Perry County. Displays are also found in the hallways and stairways. As new donations are received, they must be cataloged and labeled. You will be surprised at the vast amount of items that are on display to bring back memories for the older generation and to amaze and amuse the younger ones.
Free (Donation are appreciated)
