The Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum, Inc. would like to thank you for visiting this website!


Located in Syracuse, Indiana in the Syracuse Community Center across from Lakeside Park, the Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum, has been offering a glimpse back in time for the Lakeland area since 1987. It was founded with funds gained from the Syracuse Sequicentennial Celebration and occupied a room in the Syracuse Public Library until June, 2002 when it moved to its current location in the Syracuse Community Center.

Upcoming Events:

On May 8, the museum and the Syracuse Public Library will be hosting Jeannie Regan-Dinius from the Indiana Department of Historic Preservation.  At 1pm, Jeannie will begin at the library and, with help from cemetery board members, will lead a walk to Syracuse Cemetery and discussion on the symbols and architecture in cemeteries.  At 6pm in the Kiwanis Room at the community center, Jeannie will give a lecture on our area’s importance to the Underground Railroad movement. Plan now to join us for this FREE event.
