Bureau County Historical Museum


The Bureau County Historical Society operates three museum buildings and a research library. Available resources include birth, wedding, and anniversary files, as well as family histories and military histories of Bureau County residents.

The Bureau County Historical Society Museum is located behind the Courthouse square at the intersection of beautiful Park Avenue West and Pleasant Street in Princeton, Illinois. The museum consists of two buildings that are next door to each other: the Clark-Norris Home, a handsome Prairie Square mansion built in 1900, and the Newell-Bryant House, a stately Greek Revival house dating back to 1853. The Museum is behind the Courthouse. There is free parking on Park Avenue in front of the Museum.
