What We Do
Since 1924 we’ve been preserving the past for the future. We collect, preserve and exhibit historic artifacts and records of the people of Boone County. We operate the Boone County History & Culture Center, which consists of the Walters History Galleries, the Montminy Art Gallery, the Village at Boone Junction and the historic Maplewood House – Columbia’s most beloved 19th-century home.
What Makes Us Special?
We are a unique hybrid, the only area history museum and art gallery of its kind, both under one big, red, shiny roof. We are a unique treasure in the community – a cultural storehouse full of surprises. We are a heritage arts institution that is celebrating its 90th anniversary. “Amazing” can be found here!
Because history MATTERS. It’s the story of us.
