Our Mission

Our Mission:

To collect, preserve, and share Newaygo County history.

Located in the heart of River County in beautiful downtown Newaygo, The Heritage Museum of Newaygo County is a stunning historical building with modern renovations.

Soothing forest colors, an innovative use of materials, dramatic architecture, and distinctive local artwork are spread throughout the spaces, making a perfect backdrop to highlight the history of a unique region of Michigan.


The new museum is a great place for all ages to make fun and informative connections with the past. Exhibits on topics such as Native American history, the importance of logging, the rise of farming, and modern  day tourism are just some of the things to experience.


A new and expanded retail space lets you bring history home with you, and you can host your events in one of our modern, well equipped venues.
