Historic New Carlisle opens new museum, exhibit space

Historic New Carlisle has announced the opening of its new museum at 112 E. Michigan St. The organization, founded in 1989, purchased the east half of the former Miller’s Home Café and rehabilitated the building to house a local history museum and gift shop. The space will allow HNC to increase educational programming and better promote its mission of preserving local history and historic preservation. In its 31 years, HNC has hosted tours, programs and local history exhibits, including the restoration of the historic 1860 Old Republic in 1998. The group made the Old Republic its home until selling the property in 2019. A private celebration honoring the volunteers who contributed to the project was held on July 15, and a local grand opening was held on July 18 and 19 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The museum will be open from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (CDT) Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays.
