The ongoing story of our small town


Who We Are

From the stills of 19th Century Catholic settlers,

to 20th Century rock n' roll hangouts, to the 21st Century gold standard of bourbon, the MCHC hosts exhibits and events that tell the ongoing stories of our small town

Welcome to the Marion          County Heritage Center

What does the MCHC do?

We preserve the valuable and vital evidence of life in our communities.

We create connections that transcend generations and geography. 

We believe that knowledge of our shared history is essential to civic engagement, helping us to understand current issues and grasp opportunities.

We believe that everyone has a story, and that we are strongest when every voice is heard.
