Our museum documents our community heritage, including local connections to Lucey Shipley Hanks Sparrow, who was the grandmother of Abraham Lincoln.
The museum contains artifacts, books, and documents about the local history of the Forkland area. Especially notable are the genealogical resources available for families that have roots in this area.
Several books about Forkland history and genealogy are available for sale at the Forkland Gift Shop next to the museum or by mail order.
The museum is open May through October, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, and by appointment.
