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:

The museum will be running concessions and a table at the Community Garage Sale inside the community center on October 21, 2017. On the menu is: Hot dogs, sloppy joes, chips, cookies, and drinks, as well as donuts and coffee during breakfast until we run out. Come out, support your museum, and maybe find a few treasures!

The museum will be open 6-8 pm during the Fall Carnival on October 28, 2017. Jamie will be dressed up, handing out candy, and reading books to the kids. Com on out for a lot of free family fun!
