We are an all-volunteer community historical society and museum presenting local and regional exhibits in an old-time general store. We've tried to make our museum look much like the general store did a hundred years ago (compare interior photos from 1905 and 1999).
The museum is owned and operated by the Historic Millburn Community Association, Incorporated. We offer a brief history of how the HMCA founded the museum.
We're located in Old Mill Creek, Lake County, Illinois, about 15 miles west of Lake Michigan and about five miles south of the Wisconsin border. The Millburn area was annexed to Old Mill Creek in 1991. We have directions, which include a map, to help motorists find their way.
Martin's General Store Museum is usually open Sundays from 12:30 until 4:00 p.m. (if volunteers are available) from mid-April through mid-November. We are closed from the middle of November thru March, opening again in April. Special group visits may be arranged by appointment only. Check our scheduleto make sure that we'll be open when time you plan to visit. Feel free to call Chairperson Jennifer Andrew at 847-828-3737 to confirm that the museum is staffed and open on the Sunday you would like to visit. We can usually arrange visits by appointment at other times as well.
We are open to the public and do not charge admission. Please consider making a donation. Read the brochure that we give to visitors as they arrive.
You may enter the exhibit area.
We are appreciative of the donation of items for our collection.
