The Historical Society was founded in 1967. The museum is housed in an old library, a Carnegie Library. Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie donated money so than communities (and at time universities) could build libraries.

There are almost 1,700 such libraries in the United States, built between 1883 and 1929. Dublin’s library was built in 1903 and 1904.

There are numerous exhibits within the spacious interior of the museum. There is information on early inhabitants, Native Americans, and on local Confederate soldiers. The docent on duty gave us a brief history of the library, and its life as a museum. As is often the case with older buildings, this one was undergoing repairs, so one corner was off limits to visitors.

See the seventeenth-century flintlock pistol found in an old chimney in Ireland, the historic wedding dress, invitations, and other mementos as well as the many items from a local family’s sitting room. Many items are hard for younger visitors to see. There is a distinct “hands-off” feel to the exhibits, though there were some great miniatures and historic toys that would interest younger guest. The history of the library itself is fascinating.
