Museum & Cultural Center
The Heritage Center, opened in 1985. It is both a historical and a cultural museum dedicated to representing the rich history, customs, traditions and art of Jackson County. The museum is composed of four separate exhibit areas: the ''Brown-Proctor House,'' the ''Addition,'' the pioneer village named ''Sagetown,'' and the ''Little Courthouse.'' A complete tour begins by introducing visitors to the Walt B. Hammer Jr. Family Research Library inside the entrance to the house. Visitors then learn about the people who lived in the home before exploring cultural and technological exhibits dating from 10,000 B.C. to the early 20th century, finally completing the tour with a walk around our historically preserved cabins and the Little Courthouse, which serves as a repository for Jackson County's early records.
