Heritage Village

Heritage Village, an exciting addition to Calhoun County Park, is funded, managed and maintained by The Calhoun County Historical Society.

Heritage Village grounds.

In the early 1990's, Historical Society President, Lorentz Carl Hamilton, made a proposal to create a heritage village. The proposed plan would include structures found in Calhoun County in the 1800's and early 1900's. The Village would provide a means to preserve and display aging buildings and artifacts from that era. This site would be a valuable tool to create tourism and educate future generations about past life in Calhoun County. The Historical Society determined that the Calhoun County Park would be the best suited location for the village. Discussions and legal procedures with the Park Board were handled by Mr. Hamilton. The proposal was approved in 1996 beginning plans for the project layout and construction. The seven buildings in Heritage Village were all relocated from areas within Calhoun County.

• There is a county map in the Stevens School that has the original locations of the Heritage Village structures.
