Merrill Historical Society, Inc.
Merrill History & Culture Center
100 E. Third Street, Merrill, WI 54452
Our Mission is to identify, collect, preserve and protect historic cultural resources relating to the history of Wisconsin, and specifically the Merrill area.
Status of the Heritage Center Project:
We are waiting for a few remaining building materials to come in:
- treads for the original stairway area;
- wood shoe for the base around our original refinished wood floor upstairs;
- Spring cleaning to spruce up the lower level again and rid it of plaster dust.
The Merrill Historical Society Board of Directors is making every effort to complete this building project without using the approved Line of Credit, and we have been able to do that through this point.
New Items of Merrill History to Check Out:
- The Historical Society is helping Matt Kloth sell a DVD that he has produced about Merrill - some past and some present pictures. The cost is $15 and Matt is donating $5 of each DVD to a worthy cause. He has chosen the Historical Society for some of his first sales. Click the button to buy online ($1 shipping is added) or stop in and pick one up.
