Our Mission

The Lorain Historical Society engages members of the community and our visitors in our shared and diverse history through preservation, education, collaborations, and exciting programming for all ages, so that we learn from the past, develop civic pride, and transform the future.

Call us at (440) 245-2563 or
email us at info@lorainhistory.org

Please note that the Moore House Museum is closed through March, as we are in the midst of cleaning, maintenance and new exhibit preparation.  

Research questions can be sent to kdonaldson@lorainhistory.org

Thank you for your patience!
