The Breckenridge-Wheeler Area Historical Society, Inc. was established in 1994 as a result of a historical committee organized by the Breckenridge Area Chamber of Commerce. It received its advance ruling for a 501c3 organization in 1995 and its final status in 1998. It currently owns and operates two museum sites.
Its normal summer hours of operations are on Mondays from 9-12.
Groups and private tours can be made by special arrangements by calling 989.842.1241.
Both museums are staffed by willing volunteers.
Our mailing address is

Both museums are located side by side, right on M46.
A semi-monthly newsletter is published for its members called the Plank-Road Dispatch and is mostly done using e-mail.
