Opened in 2004, the goal of the museum is to preserve and present the history of Hamburg.

The museum is located in one of Hamburg's major historic buildings.  The building began in the mid-1850's as a Methodist Church; housed the Township offices in the mid-1900's and was the home of the Hamburg Township Library for over 20 years.

Hamburg Historical Museum

raise the roof


It seems like just yesterday that we began cleaning and painting the new Hamburg Historical Museum. But it has been over nine years that a group of dedicated volunteers on a very shoe string budget have worked to preserve and present the history of Hamburg. It costs an average of $700 a month to cover utilities, insurance and business supplies. Income from the Tea Room, Gift Shop, Resale Shop and donations keep us going. But the Museum building is in jeopardy. We need to replace the roof. Patching and temporary fixes no longer work. The cost is $30,000.00. We know we cannot raise this amount of money overnight, but we are asking your help either through donations, attending a Museum activity, or becoming/renewing your membership in the Historical Society. Thank you for your help.

crossstitch needlework


So many of us are involved in the art of quilting. We make quilts, collect quilts, use quilts, admire quilts. Our new exhibit displays a variety of quilts and embroidered items, varying  in design and execution. Most of these were made before there were stores with thousands of fabrics to choose from, rotary cutters, electric sewing machines and hobby time that allows today’s quilters the luxury of quilting all day, every day. This does not mean that today’s quilts are less than those made yesterday. It only means that there are more of these symbols of warmth, comfort, love and creativity in the world.
