MISSON STATEMENT
Our MISSION is to establish, maintain, and operate a museum for the general public, and to collect, research, care for, and interpret materials and artifacts of cultural
and historical interest to the residents of, and visitors to, Effingham County, Illinois.

Our VISION is that the 1872 Effingham County Courthouse remains as an architectural gem that instills a sense of community pride and provides a venue to
educate and showcase the history, art, and transportation of Effingham County.

Get Involved

On November 11, 2012, the Museum opened its doors to the public. Currently there are exhibits only on the first floor, but work is taking place on the second floor to create more exhibit space and more room for lectures and other types of public gatherings.

Much work needs to be done. Can we count on your help?
