Perry County Museum

The Perry County Museum is a time capsule of Perry County eras gone by. Housed in the two-story home that Joseph and Mary (Broeker) Duerr built in 1881 this historical museum will transport you back to times forgotten.

The museum opened in May of 1990. Each room completes another phase. The rooms include areas of: children’s toys/supplies, kitchen, schools, books, churches, medical and many other treasures from Perry County. Displays are also found in the hallways and stairways. As new donations are received, they must be cataloged and labeled. You will be surprised at the vast amount of items that are on display to bring back memories for the older generation and to amaze and amuse the younger ones.
