Sunfield Historical Society/Welch Museum

161 Main Street
Sunfield, MI 48890


The Sunfield Historical Society operates the Welch Historical Museum in the former Welch Hardware building donated by the Welch family in 2011. Come and walk through the full-sized 1860's Thorp family log cabin built within the museum. View Sunfield High School graduates from 1918-1963 and the restored 1927 Reo Sunfield Fire Truck, plus many displays of local and area artifacts that will take you back in time when life was simpler and moved at a slower pace. The museum also hosts a genealogy library that is filled with family histories, family files, cemetery and area funeral home records, area (and beyond) hard copy newspapers and so much more. Museum and Genealogy Library are open Mondays 10-2, Wednesdays 3-5, Saturdays 10-2 and by appointment (517) 449-4895. We look forward to your visit. Check us out on the web
