From its humble beginnings in 1914 as a school house to educate the youth of Glen Carbon, the building housing the Glen Carbon Heritage Museum continues to serve the community with a mission of education. The multi-level museum tells the story of Glen Carbon through a series of vibrant exhibits.  Learn about the history of the community’s past with hands-on exhibits and a history detective program for children. Hold a chunk of local coal and see how Madison Coal Corporation impacted the community with its company town approach to mining. Touch some of the pressed bricks made from highly sought after Glen Carbon Clay.
