North Clark Historical Museum to reopen


After being shut down for the past year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the North Clark Historical Museum will reopen soon

AMBOY – After a year of shutdown due to COVID-19, the North Clark Historical Museum will soon be reopening. The museum’s goal is to bring the past to life, starting with a display of antique quilts on Sat., March 27 and Sun., March 28 from noon to 4 p.m.  

In the past, quilting brought people together, building friendships and beautiful bed coverings or wall art.  This event evokes memories of the Annual Quilt Show which has been held in years past.  The museum staff and volunteers look forward to sharing old quilts and quilt tops donated to the organization over the years.  Several members will also bring prized quilts from their personal collection.

The 2021 Raffle Quilt, “Prairie Sampler” made by the Chelatchie Quilters, will be available to view and tickets will be available to purchase.  Quilt Raffle proceeds go to the Capital Improvement Fund.

The Museum will re-open to the public on April 10 and will be open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.  The hours are noon to 4 p.m.  Area residents and visitors are encouraged to plan a visit to North Clark County and view the exhibits at the museum.
