The Cedar County Historical Society is here to serve you. Are you looking for genealogical information, interested in local history, or want to see a huge collection of Cedar County artifacts?  We've got it all, so stop in to the museum and visit!  

Summer Hours

The museum will be opened for extended hours for the summer from April 4 through Sept 26 this year.  Our Summer Hours will be Tuesday 10-7, Thursday 10-4, Saturday 10-2.  We will return to our current hours starting in October.  We are hoping this will give families and patrons who work during the day an opportunity to come out and enjoy the museum.  This will be a bit of an experiment and its success will determine if we do this again next year.  Looking forward to seeing you at the museum.
