Beloit Historical Society

The Lincoln Center is the home of the Robert and Elizabeth Solem Museum. Located on the site of the former Lincoln Junior High School, the Center’s museum offers visitors a chance to view exhibit areas which focus on a variety of local historical themes. The exhibit areas include the Beloit Gallery, Arthur Missner Veterans Gallery and Memorial, the Ted Perring Sports Hall of Fame, and the Beloit Hall of Fame. The Center also houses the Beloit Historical Society's offices, archives, community room, collection storage rooms, and the Luebke Family Memorial Library. Researchers, genealogists, and curious visitors are invited to use the Society’s research materials. The Hanchett-Bartlett Homestead includes: the transitional Greek revival-Italianate style house, restored in its period colors and containing furnishings of 1850-1885, the original stone barn and smokehouse, a restored rural schoolhouse and a picnic area.
