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

Local 3rd graders will be touring the Moore House Museum and the Carnegie Center as part of their curriculum from May 15 through June 2.  Due to scheduling, it will be necessary to close both buildings to the public during this time period for any tours or research.  

The Administrative Offices will be open.  We appreciate your patience.
