Our Story Starts Here

Allen County has a magnificent history comprised of numerous memorable places and events, such as the Solar Refinery, Lima Locomotive Works, John Dillinger’s jailbreak, and the Great Black Swamp. But just as important are the immense collections of everyday people, events and artifacts that together play an even larger role in who we are today. It is the privilege and passion of the Allen County Museum and Historical Society to collect, preserve and share those collections to inspire and educate our visitors.
