During the season, the Museum is open daily from noon to 4. The train is operated during the same hours but on weekends only.

Research Room (Open All Year)

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus, the Historical Society is closing the Research Room starting Monday March 23rd at least thru the end of the month. We will continue to update our website as the situation progresses.

The Research Room is located in the lower level of the HCHS Heritage Center at the corner of 1st St. and N. Avenue in Lake Linden. Here you'll find newspapers, books and other materials to aid in your research of local history and local families. The Research Room is open to the public all year long. Hours are Monday & Friday 9:30 AM to 4 PM, and Wednesdays from 10 AM to 4 PM (except over Christmas & New Years).

The Historical Society is an all volunteer organization, and because of this we may not always be open during the posted hours. It's always best to call ahead and confirm our hours at (906) 296-4121.
