Spring is just around the corner!

The Moore House Museum will re-open on April 4th with a new tour that focuses on Mayor Moore and his family.  Thank you for your patience during the winter season as we took care of general cleaning and maintenance of the museum.

The Carnegie Center is currently open, and the Gift Shop is fully stocked with new merchandise.

Research questions can be sent to kdonaldson@lorainhistory.org
