The Cass County Historical Society was organized during a meeting of the Citizens Club at Library Hall on Feb. 12, 1907. Exhibits featuring many items from our collection are currently on display at the Long Home Museum, a beautiful Italianate home built for Dr. George Jerolaman in 1853 by George Bevan. The house was donated to the historical society for use as a museum in 1967 by Benjamin H. Long in memory of his parents Benjamin F. Long and Lucy Nichols Long.
The Long Home Museum showcases thousands of artifacts from Cass County’s past including paintings by artists George Winter and Wils Berry, river, canal & railroad artifacts, military uniforms & equipment, Native American artifacts, antique toys, housewares, quilts and much more.
A two-story log cabin was painstakingly disassembled and reconstructed next to the Long House Museum in 1974.
The cabin was originally built near Galveston, IN,
sometime around 1863.
The Cass County Museum was purchased in 2019 to provide more space for our library, programs and exhibits. This location currently features staff offices and the Castaldi Family History Center. In the near future, the Cass County Museum will be the permanent exhibit home of our rare 1920 ReVere Tourer automobile, our American mastodon fossils, an expanded military exhibit and a reimagined
Main Street Shops exhibit experience.
We are currently working to provide better accessibility to all CCHS experiences. Visitors with mobility difficulties may find the Long Home Museum site challenging to visit as climbing stairs and traversing uneven ground are currently required
to fully experience the site.
We thank you for visiting our website and hope to
see you at the museums soon!
