The Dobson Museum & Home will remain closed from Wednesday, January 12th - Monday, January 31st.

Due to recent rise in COVID-19 numbers in our community and area. We put our visitors and volunteers health and safety at top priorities as we know many people throughout the area who have tested positive or been affected by the recent spread of cases. We will keep you posted as to our operations for February 2022.

Goodrich exhibit.

The Dobson Home built in 1915-16 is an extension of the museum and open for tours and rental for events. The Dobson family furniture remains in the house today. The house is listed the National Register of Historic Places.

The gardens at the Dobson Memorial Center surround the home and are continued in the museum courtyard. From spring through fall there is a steady show of color from the many perennials and annuals in bloom. The Miami Garden Club and volunteers from the Ottawa County Historical Society maintain the many beds. Visitors are welcome to stroll through the gardens.
