Open Sundays from Memorial Day to Labor Day
1-3 PM or by appointment
It seems we picked the right day to come to Hillsboro. Not only did we enjoy the Cesky Den Festival, we also got to see their museum during the few months it is is open. No set admission charge but donations accepted. The museum is part of the Hillsboro Area Historical Society. There are three buildings, located at Albert Field Memorial Park. The white building is the replica of a one-room schoolhouse.
The 2nd building is an actual log cabin and former post office, not originally here but moved from Greenwood Township in 1957.
The largest of the buildings is the main museum, with many Hillsboro artifacts.
This is Hillsboro’s one surviving kerosene lamp. They used to light downtown before electricity. A lamplighter would fill and light the lamps every day.
There are many exhibits here to see, well worth the visit. We did feel welcome in Hillsboro, and Al even learned more about his Czech heritage. A wonderful day!
