The Historical Society of Lincoln Park and its supporters collect and preserve artifacts, as well as printed and photographic materials pertaining to the history of Lincoln Park. We have interesting materials about the early French and German settlers and much about early Ecorse Township. These items are displayed with pride at the Lincoln Park Historical Museum.

For many years, a professor from Ypsilanti brought his class in Michigan History twice a year to our Museum, saying, "This is a perfect ‘gem of a Museum’, what every local community should strive for." We keep striving to make it what Professor Tom Jones so generously called it, a perfect ‘gem of a Museum.’

We welcome tour groups, classes from the schools of Lincoln Park, Senior Class Reunions, other visitors, drop-ins. We make special arrangements, if needed.

The Historical Society of Lincoln Park supports the Lincoln Park Historical Museum in its renovation from a former depression era Post Office building to its present form. 50,000 feet of wire were used in rewiring the edifice, ceilings were lowered and plastered, windows were replaced, new doors were installed, plaster and paint are still being used. The Goodell Bell Tower was erected in 1999, and in 2002 the Memorial Clock brought added interest.

Our Society has meetings at 7:30 PM the first Wednesday of October, November, December (Open House), February, March and April. In May, we hold our Annual Dinner. Everyone welcome…new members, too!

The museum is currently accepting engraved brick orders to be placed at the Lincoln Park Heritage Plaza. Deadline for orders is Saturday, April 22nd. Click here for more details.
