Description

Gathered and preserved artifacts from the 1800's until the present time. These artifacts are used to educate and celebrate our heritage. Special events and classes are offered to patrons.

Mission

Our aim is to gather and preserve the heritage of our past while instilling in the present generation a feeling of appreciation for their heritage.

History

Mud Lake was founded in the early 1900's as an agricultural community. Local residents had long spoken of “going to Mud Lake” when they were going to the Mud Lake Merc or the nearby businesses. The store had been named by its founder to show it was meant to serve the entire community and was located centrally in the area. The general store operated for several decades in the center of town. After being closed for many years, the Historical Society acquired the property from Charlie Braun, which we are very grateful for.

Governance

Did you know your donations to the Mud Lake Historical Society & Museum are tax-deductible? We are a 501-C3 non-profit organization staffed with all volunteers who spend countless hours preserving our history and promoting museum programs and events.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
