The Cass County Historical Society was organized during a meeting of the Citizens Club at Library Hall on Feb. 12, 1907. Exhibits featuring 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. 


Twenty rooms showcase thousands of artifacts from Cass County’s past including paintings by artists George Winter and Wils Berry, personal belongings of General John Tipton, river, canal & railroad artifacts, military uniforms & equipment dating back to the early 1800s, Native American artifacts and much more. A boutique shop will debut in the Long Home Museum library in November 2023 featuring items handmade by Cass County artisans.


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.

We are currently working to provide better accessibility to all CCHS experiences. Visitors with mobility difficulties may find the Long Home Museum and Cabin site challenging to visit as climbing stairs and traversing uneven ground are currently required to fully

experience the site. 


We are also working hard to provide our second museum location inside the historic Farmers & Merchants Bank building in downtown Logansport. The new Cass County Museum provides safe and accessible space for organization and establishment of the Castaldi Family History Center library, our collection archives, staff offices, classrooms, a theater and much needed

new exhibit space for display of our rare 1920 ReVere tourer automobile, our American mastodon fossils, an expanded military exhibit, and a reimagined

Main Street Shops experience. 

We thank you for visiting our website and hope to

see you at the museums soon!
