Opened in June 2011, the Carterville Heritage Museum is a beautifully renovated building showcasing architectural detail of a former 1924 high school, hundreds of photos and memorabilia. It also serves as a gift shop, offering nostalgic, custom-designed t-shirts, custom ornaments, and popular hand-made cards made by community volunteers.
Comprised of both permanent and rotating displays, every visit to the Museum will seem like your first.
Each year the Preservation Foundation hosts the Mistletoe Market as a fundraiser for the museum.
