2015 is our 50th Anniversary!
Fifty years ago, in 1965, the Fort Miami Heritage Society was established. Taking their name from a French trading post founded in 1679 where the St. Joseph River meets Lake Michigan, the founding members originally united to serve the community and bring together people with a common interest in the past. Now known as the Heritage Museum and Cultural Center, the mission of the museum remains the same: to preserve our history as a powerful tool for planning the present and future.
