Newaygo County Museum & Heritage Center
The Newaygo County Museum and Heritage Center is a community history project whose mission is to collect, preserve, and share Newaygo County’s history. The NCMHC is supported by individual contributions, in-kind support, the generosity of local business people, the Fremont Area Community Foundation, The Gerber Foundation, The Arthur and Virginia Nelsen InFaith Community Foundation, Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, and, of course, our Guests and Volunteers!
Located in the historic City of Newaygo, just off M-37 at 12 Quarterline Road, across from Brook’s Park. The Newaygo County Museum and Heritage Center showcases the history of Newaygo County from its earliest recorded inhabitants through the era of logging, early settlements, agriculture, industry, and recreation. A military room honors Newaygo Country Veterans from the Civil War, WW I & II, Korea, Viet Nam, as well as the Gulf War and Desert Storm.
A research room is available with digitized and searchable early Newaygo County newspapers, Ancestry.com and other materials for researching local history and genealogy. The gift shop features local history publications available for purchase.
The Heritage Speaker Series is held on the second Thursday of each month. Various historical topics are presented by knowledgeable and talented presenters. While the Series is free, reservations are encouraged as seating is limited.
The Museum and Heritage Center is funded by the Fremont Area Community Foundation, Great Lakes Energy, and private donors. Field trips for county 2nd, 3rd, and 4th County schools is funded by the Gerber Foundation.
