It is the mission of the Berrien County Historical Association to collect and preserve artifacts related to Berrien County history through exhibits, publications, research activities, educational opportunities, and community outreach programs.
The Berrien County Historical Association operates the History Center at Courthouse Square, a National Register of Historic Places location. Four of the five historic buildings are open to the public and are home to exhibits that explore the county’s past. To fulfill our mission, the BCHA commits itself to a strategic plan every five years to concentrate on different areas of operations. To view our current strategic plan, visit here.
Each year the BCHA hosts dozens of events, tours, and exhibits on the grounds and around the county. While many of these offerings are physical, digital opportunities are also available and we encourage you to visit the links above to find your next passion.
Many amazing people work behind the scenes to make the BCHA the premier location for history lovers in Berrien County. We encourage to to get to know our staff and Board of Directors, whose passion for history is letting your’s run wild!
