Welcome to Breckenridge Wheeler Area Historical Society

The Breckenridge-Wheeler Area Historical Society, Inc. was established in 1994 as a result of a historical committee organized by the Breckenridge Area Chamber of Commerce.  It received its advance ruling for a 501c3 organization in 1995 and its final status in 1998. It currently owns and operates two museum sites.

Its normal summer hours of operations are on Mondays from 9-12.

Groups and private tours can be made by special arrangements by calling 989.842.1241.

Both museums are staffed by willing volunteers. ​

Our mailing address is

Both museums are located side by side, right on M46.

A semi-monthly newsletter is published for its members called the Plank-Road Dispatch and is mostly done using e-mail.
