Welcome to the Lake City Museum!
One of the objectives of this web site is to share Hinsdale County and Lake City's past. If you have photo's that relate to our early history, information on events, stories of your family when they lived here or other tidbits that might be of interest, please share them with us. We would love to post your stories and photos on the web site. Please don't hesitate to contact us with what you would like to share and we will be glad to work with you.
The museum is staffed by volunteer docents. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. If they don't know, they can find out for you.
During the Summer months several tours are held to educate the public on the history of our community. All are walking tours and begin at the Museum. All tours are individually unique and of interest to all ages.
It's WINTER at the Museum!
And, with the new year, we continue to focus on keeping our history ALIVE in the present and years to come.
Want to join our efforts? Print out our new membership/donation form via the link under the Hinsdale County Historical Society heading, and show your support today!
The Museum is closed and our 2015 exhibits, events, and presentations are now being planned. This winter, we will be replacing our older "rotating" exhibits with exciting new ones, and will continue cataloging artifacts, doing general maintenance and spiffing up, and working on the "creative" storage and organizational necessities of all historical societies. You can help us in our efforts by becoming a member in 2015, making a donation, or volunteering. Anything that will help us preserve the past for present and future generations is greatly appreciated.
