The Englewood Area Historical Museum was founded on September 23, 2014, and offered its grand opening to the community on December 7th, 2015.
The founding members, greatly comprised of Englewood natives, desired to provide the citizens of the Englewood a local venue to honor and memorialize the rich history of the community.
In 2018 the Museum was re-organized and, with the help of S.H.O.R.E. (Southwest Historical Organization of Resources and Education) and the Friends of the Englewood Archives, was relocated to the historic Lampp House at 604 Perry Street in Englewood.
The Museum collects, displays and preserves items relating to the area's cultural heritage which will serve to help involve and educate the public on how this heritage affects the ongoing American experience.
The true use of history, whether civil or military, is not to make man clever for the next time; it is to make him wise forever.
