Heritage Hall Museum



Heritage Hall Mission:  

  1.   To provide a permanent location (room) for the collection honoring local author and illustrator Robert McCloskey

  2.   To preserve and promote local history with an emphasis on changing exhibits

  3.   To provide access to the Frederick G. Mueller building

Some of the goals and objectives of the museum are:  To expose the community and visitors to our community to the rich history of our city, to collaborate with the Butler County Historical Society in creating two major exhibits at Heritage Hall annually, to publish a newsletter bi-annually, to promote greater awareness and knowledge of the historic architecture within the city of Hamilton, to encourage use of the former Hamilton City Council Chambers for lecture/special events, and to actively seek grant opportunities and memberships for funding sources.

Be sure to visit Lentil Park!

This lovely little park was established, and is maintained

by the Hamilton Community Foundation on land owned

by the city.  It was one of the Foundation’s 50th

Anniversary legacy gifts to the city. You will find it on

the corner of Front and High Street near Heritage Hall.
