Since 1924 the Boone County Historical Society has been preserving the past for the future. We collect, preserve and exhibit historic artifacts and records of the people of Boone County. We operate the Boone County History & Culture Center, which consists of the Walters History Galleries, Montminy Art Gallery, Village at Boone Junction, and historic Maplewood House – Columbia’s most beloved 19th-century home.
We are a unique hybrid: the only area history museum and art gallery of its kind, both under one big, red, shiny roof. We are a unique treasure in the community – a cultural storehouse full of surprises. Through history and art exhibits, events, and special offerings such as Meet the Author and the Blind Boone Piano Concert Series, the Boone County Historical Society is YOUR cultural arts destination in central Missouri. We are an important community treasure, educational resource for students, and an important tourist destination.
