About Us



The North Manchester Center for History collects, preserves and interprets the history of the North Manchester and Northern Indiana Eel River Basin.

From the arrival of the first American Indians in the region to the present day, the Center collects and preserves the area's history with books, documents, artifacts and other cultural objects. 

The Center interprets its collections to the public with a museum facility, educational programs, lectures, public events and publications and encourages others to help collect, preserve and interpret the history of the North Manchester area.  



The North Manchester Center of History is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is staffed by an Executive Director, Curator, Museum Coordinator and, most importantly, our Volunteers. 


Volunteer Opportunities

 Our volunteer staff help run the museum at all levels from cataloging and organizing our exhibits, to hosting tours and maintaining our social media communications. We'd love to have you join us. 



The museum is committed to and continues to add so much to our small community from hosting special events, honoring our local citizens, scheduling historical talks, and being part of every 2nd graders annual tour of downtown.
