The building, in the Romanesque Revival style, was built in 1892 and served as the First Presbyterian Church until 1903. Later, it served as a civic center, housing the library, art center, museum, and various social service and civic organizations. As the museum grew, it eventually took over the entire building, and an addition was built. The site includes First Presbyterian Church’s historic cemetery and two restored log houses. Civil War wounded were cared for in an earlier church on this site.

The museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
