Dedicated to the study of the area's history and the preservation of Macoupin County memorabilia, this fine home & outbuildings is a wonderful example of Macoupin County's past. The Anderson Mansion Museum consists of a two-story Victorian home filled with antiques and collectibles of the past, with memories and a Library of Literature of our ancestors. Several outer buildings, including an authentic Schoolhouse and newly constructed and equipped Print Shop, are interesting displays also. Carlinville is home to a district of elegant homes placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Covering most of the west & central sections of the city, it is well worth a visit. The MCHS grounds are also available for Weddings and Tours for families or Class Reunions and support the local School District with a Civil War days presentation. Call the MCHS at (217)854-2850.
