CASE HISTORICAL MUSEUM

Welcome to our web site!

 The Case Historical Museum is a virtual museum.  We moved to the Mattawan, Michigan area ( North of M-94 ) in the fall of 2013.

The Case Historical Museum exists today because of our great-great-grandfather's and our father's common lifetime interests in Farming, Military and Education.

   Our father was born on the Michigan farm that our great-great-grandfather started in 1906.  We own that farm today.  In the winters there were many snowbound weeks that allowed for a lot of reading and the pursuit of education.  He came to love reading and listening to the radio about history and world events.  This led to his desire to obtain a college degree, a commission in the Army and a life of travel.  Where-ever he traveled he visited all the museums he could.
   Our father always believed that museums along with libraries were key repositories of knowledge.  It was a dream of his to have his own museum where he could display his collections.  When he retired from the Army in 2001, he converted a rental property into his museum which he called Case Historical Museum.
   We will continue our father's legacy.  The Museum will serve as a forum for education.
