Rediscover Perry County’s Past

The Perry County Museum is a time capsule of Perry County eras gone by. Housed in the two-story home that Joseph and Mary (Broeker) Duerr built in 1881 this historical museum will transport you back to times forgotten. From arrowheads to quilts, from clothing to children’s toys, tools to school memorabilia and diaries to advertisements. You will re-discover it here. Many of the artifacts donated by local families who have called Perry County home for generations will educate, amuse and inspire you whether you are a life born resident here or a guest for the weekend.
Family keepsakes, works of art, photographs of days gone by. Come join us for your trip into the past.
The Museum, which opened its doors in 1990 is operated by dedicated volunteers of the Perry County Historical Society. Hours: Tuesday/Thursday 1pm-3pm Saturday 9am-noon. Additional tours by appointment 573-547-6383 or 314-971-3348 Admission Free
