Historic Town Hall Amberg Museum

News and Events

Much Accomplished Thanks to Volunteers

Like many historical societies, the Amberg Historical Society depends upon volunteers. This year was no exception. Volunteers added the Genealogy link to the website, remodeled the bathroom, constructed storage, put a new metal roof on the carriage house, began work on a new 1930 kitchen in the Old Town Hall, put a new roof on the Old House porch, moved the outhouse to a new location, repaired the electrical service, and started work on updating the Amberg depot exhibit. Most important, volunteers faithfully kept the doors open throughout the season guiding hundreds of visitors. Thank volunteers for all your help!

More Projects for 2018

The 1930 kitchen exhibit work will continue repairing the ceiling and walls. The Old House will get new siding and shutters. The Amberg Museum building will be updated to LED lighting to preserve the collection. The saloon exhibit is getting a player piano. That means volunteers with big muscles to move some pianos. The updating of the Amberg depot exhibit will continue in the summer. There are also plans to remodel the front of the museum building. That is a lot of work! More volunteers are always welcome. E-mail the Society if you would like to help.
