Our Vision

The Craftsman style Carnegie Library Building built in 1911 on the Spencer Town square, served as a community library for 90 years. Document storage for Owen County was to be its use for the next 10 years.

In 2005, the OCH&CC Committee was formed by a group of community leaders with the vision for a county-wide center to celebrate the past, present and future of Owen County.

Our Mission

The Owen County Heritage & Culture Center strives to bring together the community through the promotion and sharing of our Owen County heritage and culture to enrich our everyday lives. We promote preservation of our artifacts, traditions, arts, crafts, customs and history through workshops, festivals, demonstrations, displays and educational programs.

Join Us!
