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.
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.
