The Gardner Historical Museum, Inc., was founded in 2002. One of the first actions of the organization was to purchase this historic Gardner residence. In order to transform the property into a museum site, renovation was performed on the inside, as well as several needed improvements to the outside, including landscaping and parking. Our Grand Opening event occurred on September 20, 2003, and included a ribbon cutting, tours, and dinner.

Visiting the museum is like taking a step back into the past. Each room is filled with exhibits that highlight Gardner's early heritage. Local residents have donated and loaned hundreds of artifacts to the museum inventory.
