Housed in a restored 1912 building formerly City Hall, this museum contains memorabilia from the longest continuously running festival in the South – the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival. A variety of displays in the museum evoke memories of past festivals, including band and majorette uniforms, pageant gowns, posters, magazines and photographs. The Historical Museum also contains photographs and items from Humboldt businesses, military uniforms, medals and weaponry, post office and bank documents, telegraph equipment, and many more items from Humboldt’s past. The building includes the original jail and police exhibit. Upstairs in the building, you will even find an art center.
