Housed in a mid-1800s residence, Clinton County History Center has a touring museum and Genealogy Library. The home was purchased by Matthew Rombach (General Denver’s father-in-law) in 1855, and is also referred to as Rombach Place Museum.

The museum features rotating exhibits that highlight different artifacts and textiles in the collection. Exhibits also include the largest collection of Eli Harvey, internationally known Quaker artist, paintings and sculpture; Carl Moon photographs; artifacts of General Denver’s military and political career; medical and dental instruments; children’s toys; prehistoric Indian artifacts and more.

For the researcher, there is an extensive collection of textiles and Quaker artifacts available for scholarly research. The Clinton County History Center is handicapped accessible.
