Our Mission: To preserve and share Grinnell's history through artifacts
Welcome to the Grinnell Historical Museum's webpage! We are a non-profit volunteer-based organization with a mission to preserve and share the history of Grinnell, Iowa through artifacts. Grinnell was established in 1854 by Reverend Josiah B. Grinnell, Reverend Homer Hamlin, Dr. Thomas Holyoke, and Mr. Henry M. Hamilton. From our frontier days, Grinnell morphed into a "Jewel of the Prairie," powered by it's manufacturing and agricultural-based economy and made noteworthy by entrepreneurs, abolitionists, and academics. Here, we post information on museum events, along with tidbits of history and other resources.
