Massac County Historical Society

The Massac County Historical Society, founded in 1976, is located in the Major Elijah P. Curtis Home, a two story Classic Revival style brick structure constructed in 1870. The National Register home has been restored as much as practicable to its original appearance and contains furnishings and items that were in use during the latter half of the 19th century. The Society meets at 6:30 P.M. the first Monday of each month except September (second Monday).
