About The Museum of American Heritage

The Museum of American Heritage is dedicated to preserving the history of American innovation and technology. Located in the old Williams House, the MOAH Museum collects and exhibits electrical and mechanical devices from over the last two centuries. Permanent exhibits, as well as two major, temporary exhibits and smaller rotating concurrent exhibits are displayed annually. Special exhibits typically include related lectures, classes, workshops, and events. Also located at the Museum is the MOAH Victory Garden–a replica of a 1943 “victory garden” that civilians grew during WWI and WWII to boost morale.
