The building that now houses the Museum
was built in 1883 as the Holy Cross Lutheran
Church. In 1939, when the congregation
outgrew this building, it moved its services
to the old Union Free Church, one block
west on the opposite side of Jefferson
Street, which it had purchased in 1923 and
used as a school and social hall. The cur-
rent museum building was then converted
into Luther Hall. Improvements to this build-
ing included adding a basement, a fur-
nace, and a kitchen. In 1960, Antoinette
Meinhardt Fulton bought the building, and
in 1964, she donated it to the Society.
