Homeville’s Mission

The Homeville Museum’s mission is to play a prominent role in educating people of all ages and engaging the community in understanding historical experiences and their relationship to past and contemporary life. Through the preservation and interpretation of historic objects, photographs, films, music, and voice recordings, the perspectives and understandings of local residents are incorporated in displays intended to provide social and cultural context to the museum’s collections. Through public activities and events, the museum strives to bring its collections to life through educational presentations, reenactments, discussions, and artistic demonstrations. Core collections relate to military history, local business, industry, and railroad history.
