Westfield-Washington Historical Society and Museum: Keeping History Alive
The Westfield-Washington Historical Society and Museum is home to all kinds of Westfield, Indiana memorabilia. Just recently opened inside Westfield’s old Fire Station and Town Hall, this museum contains a refurbished motorized fire truck, the first in the area.
The modern, newly-renovated building is a study in Westfield history itself, an appropriate place for the Westfield-Washington Historical Society to call its own. Brought into being with a gift of $35,000, grant money from Hamilton County’s Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, this museum rivals some of the better museums in Westfield’s big city neighbor, Indianapolis.
One of the most interesting offerings of the Westfield-Washington Historical Society is their Historic Underground Railroad Home Tour. This event takes a group of people around downtown Westfield and elsewhere in the Washington Township area to view historic sites that were on the Westfield Underground Railroad.
The Historical Society and their museum serve all the Westfield-Washington communities as a receptacle for their combined heritage. The Historical Society also promotes maintenance and salvage of older historic structures in the region. Fundraisers, lectures, and other special events are always being planned by this dedicated group of local volunteers.
