The Empire Area Museum

Historical Museum of the Village of Empire and Empire Area

The Empire Area Museum was dedicated in June 1987, and is fashioned after the original Roen Saloon, a prominent fixture in Empire during the lumbering days. The Museum features the original bar in the Roen Saloon, a Victorian parlor, turn-of-century kitchen, artifacts from Norway Town, a blacksmith shop, barn display, railroad exhibit, a covered wagon, and much more. Behind the museum is an original one-room schoolhouse, complete with water pump and outhouse. this building also serves as our audio-visual center. The Billy Beeman Barn (full of horse drawn equipment) was added in 1990.
