Museum
The Museum is open! 
In 1965, Evelyn Brock deeded the property at 42 North Main Street to the Village of Bellbrook to be used as a historical museum maintained by the City and open to the public. Prior to Evelyn Brock, the property was owned by William and Harriet Williams and Horace Crowl. 
Visit the Bellbrook Historical Museum
The Museum is located at 42 North Main Street in downtown Bellbrook and is open on Wednesdays from 10 am to 2 pm and Saturdays from 12 pm to 4 pm and admission is free.

The Museum's displays focus on our rich local history.  You will be able to see artifacts and pictures from before the area was settled to modern times.  The displays consist of many items that have been donated or loaned to the museum from local residents.  There is always a new exhibit on display that rotates several times a year.

Quilt Exhibit at the Bellbrook Museum

 

A quilt is more than a multi-layered textile created for providing warmth and comfort.  A quilt connects us to our heritage as they are passed from one generation to the next.  These precious heirlooms carry within them the connections to our family and cultural past.  The Bellbrook Historical Museum hosts a rotating exhibit featuring quilts from its collection and temporary loans from local residents. Come visit the Museum and see these beautiful pieces of art and history and learn about quilting!

 
Drive by the Bellbrook Historical Museum, and you will likely notice a banner that says, “Welcome Xenia HOGS.” Each year the Xenia Chapter of the Harley Owners Group (aka HOG) selects 50 sites across Ohio to be a Challenge Site. The Bellbrook Historical Museum made the list for 2021. The challenge is for Xenia HOG members to visit all 50 sites and take a photo of themselves and their motorcycle by the site. Riders get to travel the State and see unusual or historical places. Members receive prizes based on the number of sites visited. The Bellbrook Historical Museum is proud to have been selected as a Challenge Site and welcomes the HOGS to visit Museum.  
Bellbrook Historical Museum Board of Trustees
As part of the agreement between the then Village and Evelyn Brock, the Museum is managed by a board of trustees appointed by City Council.  The Trustees oversee the displays, provide attendants, assist in raising funds and make recommendations to City Council relative to management and maintenance of the property.
