Historic Preservation Commission

The Beecher Historic Preservation Commission was established in 2015. The purpose of the Historic Preservation Commission is to preserve and protect the history of the Village of Beecher and the Beecher community, and to share this history with the current residents of the village. The commission is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the Beecher Depot/Museum and all artifacts contained in the museum.

The Depot/Museum is located at 620 Reed Street and is open from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. every Saturday. The museum is open limited hours because it is run solely by dedicated volunteers interested in preserving Beecher and Washington Township history.

If you are interested in learning more about Beecher history, stop by the museum or visit our history page located at:  Village History Page.

The Historic Preservation Commission meets the third Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. at the Depot/Museum and meetings are open to the public.

If you are interested in Village history and would like to volunteer for the Historic Preservation Commission, contact the Village Hall at 708-946-2261.
