The Brown County Historical Society was formed in 1970 with the purpose of bringing together those people interested in history, especially the history of Brown County.  The Society's major function shall be to discover, collect, and preserve any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of this area.

The Brown County Historical Society was instrumental in saving the old Brown County Jail building and making it the Brown County Museum of History, Inc.  It was used as as jail until 1981.  The building, built by William F. Morton, an English-born stone mason, is of modified Feudal architecture.  The building has four stories and a basement.  The jail is over 100 years old.   Members of the Society serve as docents to help keep the museum open.  They also have their historical books available at the museum for sale.


The Society meets the third Thursday of each month, 4:00 PM, at Howard Payne's Newman Hall.  Occasionally, other places are selected for their meeting if the program calls for it.
