A new project destined to become a fixture of historic Cedarburg called the Cedarburg History Museum is now open in the heart of its thriving historical downtown district. The venture was completed through the efforts of a unique partnership of the Cedarburg Landmarks Preservation Society Inc., local benefactors and the Cedarburg Cultural Center.
Located in the old Hilgen & Schroeder Mill Store at the corner of Portland and Columbia Roads, the Museum will create unique spaces for permanent installments, rotating exhibits, and interactive technology. It will also house the offices of the Cedarburg Chamber of Commerce, the Cedarburg Visitor Center and the Cedarburg General Store Museum.
In 2015, a vision became a reality when a local benefactor offered the building as a place to house the Center. From there, the Cedarburg Landmarks Preservation Society started construction to bring the building back to its original condition.
The Cedarburg Cultural Center will lend its long history of museum oversight which has proved so successful with the Kuhefuss House Museum and the General Store Museum, taking advantage of decades of exhibit expertise.
