The Heritage Museum’s collections reflect the history of Benton Harbor, Saint Joseph, and surrounding communities in Michigan and the Great Lakes region.
Our archives and storage areas provide a professional environment for the long-term care of a wide range of artifacts and archival resources. Object and archival collections are shared with the public and other preservation organizations through changing exhibits and a museum loan program.
Our research library is open to anyone interested in historical research.
Available resources include:
- photographs and postcards
- reference volumes
- business records
- oral history tapes
- vintage films
Due to COVID-19, The Heritage Research Library is currently closed.
