Bringing the Museum into the Community

Street in Chilton features an eclectic array of home and agricultural pieces which are rotated on a regular basis. The Chilton Public Library entrance area display case is home to a monthly rotating theme based display and a small bookcase at the south end of the library features historic books. The newest display case at the Calumet County Courthouse purchased in 2013 courtesy of a

Chilton Area Community Foundation grant features diverse items of interest throughout the county.  Celebrating our rich historic heritage with the community continues to grow with annual pedestrian traffic reaching over 25,000 people. View the displays and celebrate with Calumet County Historical Society.
