In 1976, an interested group of citizens from Herington founded the Herington Historical Society for the purpose of preserving and sharing the story of Herington. A small collection of artifacts was housed displayed in the post office basement. The collection at the present museum has grown to include thousands of items from Herington’s past.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, our funding for comes from memberships, donations and fundraisers. We hope that you will join in our mission to ensure the museum items are preserved for generations to come.
Take advantage of this opportunity to show your support of the museum and to honor members of your family and others who support the mission of the museum, by participating in the Herington Historical Society & Museum’s Memorial Brick Campaign.
The campaign will help the museum ensure that the museum remains an important part of the history of our community and that the historical contents are preserved and made available to the public.
These bricks will be placed in the area of the depot memorial north of the Museum.
Contributions will give honor to those who have helped to found and shape the community of Herington and will help to fund preservation efforts at the Herington Historical Museum and Railroad Annex.
