Alwill Research Center

3 Feb 2021 3:18 PM | Anonymous

During March of 2020, we set out to improve spaces within the Shelby County Historical Museum. One of the spaces was the Wayne Alwill Research Center.

We added a fresh coat of paint and installed shelving to house our record and document collections. The gray boxes you see in this picture help to provide a safe and stable environment for our historical documents.

The research center now features a dedicated workstation with access to physical documents, digitized resources, and online databases.

We have the tools you need to decipher tricky handwriting, learn more about the world that your great-grandmother grew up in, or even discover the missing link in your family tree!

The Research Center is available during our normal business hours Monday - Friday, 8am - 4pm. The cost to use the Research Center in person is listed below.

 Member Cost  Free
 Non-Member Cost  $10/Day

The Shelby County Historical Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1964. This four building complex is located at 1805 Morse Avenue Harlan, Iowa 51537.
