Info on Museum

The Clinton County History Center is a multi-function facility owned and operated by the Clinton County Historical Society, serving all those interested in our rich heritage. A mid-1800s residence, once the home of General James W. Denver (for whom Denver, Colorado was named), the Rombach Place Museum houses a changing array of exhibits that illustrate the history, diverse interests, and talents of the people of Clinton County. Included are the General Denver military and political collection, the photographic work of Carl Moon (1879-1948), and the largest collection of paintings, drawing, and sculptures by internationally known Quaker artist and sculptor Eli Harvey (1860-1957). The Clinton County History Center and Rombach Place Museum are handicapped accessible.
