The Melrose Area
Historical Society was formed in 1988 with the purpose of collecting and
preserving artifacts pertaining to the history and heritage of the area.
The Society is dedicated to operating a museum and heritage center where
these artifacts will be on display for visitors to enjoy and learn of
the past. The MAHS area includes the towns and rural areas within
the School District 740 boundaries.
Freeport, St. Rosa, New Munich, Spring Hill, Greenwald, and Meire Grove
As you visit the museum, you
are invited to investigate the past through the exciting exhibits in
each room. See
the displays that depict the life and times of our pioneers and
citizens, maybe even your grandparents or other ancestors. Learn
of the settlement of these communities through each era that defines the
people, their ethics and beliefs.
The research center materials
include, but are not limited to, genealogical files, family histories, oral history tapes, maps, newspapers, and
photographic copies from hundreds of family photos. Our volunteers
are knowledgeable individuals of the communities we serve and are
willing to help interested persons learn of the past histories and
heritages of the people of these communities.
