Sandy is getting a workout at the Museum!
Who said we didn’t have a working Board
Landscapers were short 400 bricks so we had to get together and go get more bricks for them to finish the project this fall before it freezes.
Marshall brought his tractor with forks and Robin brought the truck and they pitched in. They were suppose to get ready for a trip but instead they helped us. Thank you Robin and Marshall.
Formed in 1967, the Flat River Historical Society & Museum drew up a mission to preserve, advance, and disseminate knowledge of the history of Montcalm County, as well as the portions of Ionia and Kent County contiguous to the Flat River. As an institution of education, the Flat River Historical Society and Museum fosters a community connection while challenging the minds of learners of all ages.
Our exhibits include original items and artifacts touching on many periods of history including:
- Native American life
- Fur trade and the Flat River
- Lumbering and logging
- Farming and agriculture
- Businesses and industry
- Entertainment and pastimes
