Historic Wedding Dresses and the (Local) Women They Adorned

On exhibit in our Upper Gallery  ~  February through August 2019


Every community needs a remembering place …

We all need a place that tells our stories, through artifacts, through our dreams; a place that shares how our community came to be what it is today and why we live the way we do. We also need a place that inspires us to keep our story going. The Heritage Museum at the Priscilla U. Byrns Center is our remembering place in St. Joseph, Michigan. The museum houses our area’s history, its artifacts and archival collections and a research library in a classical building along Main Street. Carefully preserved and beautifully appointed, it presents our stories in spacious exhibit halls and creates new memories in elegant banquet facilities.

Every person’s story is important and because we believe sharing these stories is just as important, Museum admission is free to everyone. Come journey into our past, gain a deeper understanding of our present and thrill at the possibilities for the future. If we can become part of your life’s special events, please contact us. We would be privileged to weave your chapter into ours.
