Sharing the past with our future.

MCHAPS is an independent association of archeologist, historians and genealogists dedicated to sharing the history of Meade County. To help with this, they have opened the Meade County History Museum to display artifacts from Meade County’s past.

Starting from before written history and continuing through the time of earliest settlers to modern times, there are exhibits that show animals and minerals from the area and tools and objects used by the people that inhabited Meade County. Look around our site: The Media page has some examples of what you’ll see, and the Visit page will tell you our hours and how to get here.

Once you’ve had a look at the site, come visit the museum and see how things used to be for the residents of the area. To get you started, you can watch a virtual tour.

The museum is open Thursday through Saturday from 10am-2:30pm.

There are some changes in procedures. Masks will be worn, by visitors and staff excepting children under the age of two. We will attempt to arrange one-way in, and one-way out but that may not be possible. We will maintain 6 foot distancing with those intervals marked on the floor. There will be hand sanitizing stations situated at the doors and at areas around the museum. We urge our patrons to avoid touching glass cases and exhibits. Signage will be placed in noticeable locations to remind staff and visitors. All cases, handles doorknobs, surfaces, tables, chairs, and fixtures will be sanitized several times a day.
