Travel through time and explore the history of Midland County at Heritage Park – a unique combination of state-of-the-art archival and multi-purpose facilities in a pleasant campus setting, close to downtown Midland and located less than a mile from Midland Center for the Arts.

Heritage Park encompasses these facilities, all within walking distance of each other:

This is the “gateway” to Heritage Park and home to the Dorothy Dow Arbury Midland County History Gallery, a colorful, dynamic space which offers hands-on interactive exhibits. The building also houses a research library and museum store, as well as an exhibition gallery with displays changing throughout the year.

HERBERT H. DOW HISTORICAL MUSEUM Multi-media exhibits and innovative audio and video displays provide a fascinating look at the birth of Midland’s largest business and the evolution of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Experience authentic Victorian Gothic architecture at these two beautifully restored buildings. The 1874 Bradley Home is a hands-on historic house museum where you can enjoy a glimpse of the everyday life of an early Midland family. The Carriage House features an amazing collection of horse-drawn carriages and sleighs, and is home to mid-Michigan’s largest functioning blacksmith’s shop.
