-New Name: Black Earth History Center

The headquarters & archives for the Black Earth Historical Society is now called the Black Earth History Center, members decided at the September meeting. The BE History Center is still housed in the former Congregational Church at 1022 Blue Mounds Street. The BEHS holds its monthly and annual meetings plus some of its special events at the History Center. A large collection of artifacts and historic photographs are kept in the 100 plus-year-old building. Archivist Carolyn Schafer and a Black Earth Public Library staff member are currently in the process of digitizing the BEHS's historic photographs at the History Center.




-New Name: Black Earth History Museum at the Depot

The name of depot museum in Black Earth has been refined to better describe the museum's content of Black Earth area items. The new official name is the Black Earth History Museum at the Depot. It contains historic displays, photographs and artifacts pertaining to our local heritage of farming, commerce, churches, civic groups, home life, military service and recreation. Explore the Black Earth History Museum at our reopening in May 2021.
