About Ross Museum

When you visit Ross Museum, you will be surrounded by period furniture, antique china, pottery and kitchenware of an early settler at home. Next door in the Exhibit Hall, you may discover the old general store, schoolroom, chapel, barber and millinery shop. Ross Museum is a charming place to visit where history comes alive.

Outside, the gardens provide a scenic setting where natural, perennial and annual flower beds inivite you to have a picnic lunch.

Ross Museum was established in 1995 and is operated by volunteers. New members are welcome and are essential to continuing the preservation and collection of history within the Whitewater Region.

Become a member of Ross Museum.

Ross Museum serves your community solely on the strength of our volunteer members. We can't say it's a thankless job because it isn't. We love doing it and will do so until we drop. Alas, therein lies the rub.

We need young interested members of Whitewater Region to get involved in the next phase of our museum. Annual individual memberships are $10 and a family membership is $15.
