New Museum Development

The new building will equip Lincoln’s museum with multipurpose spaces that will enable visitors of all ages to engage with exhibits in a way that has not been possible before. It will also ensure the following:

  • The museum’s collection is appropriately stored, environmentally monitored and professionally curated.
  • Ample space for rotating exhibits
  • Proper space for the safeguarding, conservation and preservation of valuable artifacts


About the Museum:

The Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty was founded in 1953 by a group of community volunteers. The purpose of the Museum was to capture and preserve the history of the Town of Lincoln, with particular attention focused on the Twenty Mile Creek area, from early pioneer settlement to established communities.​ In 1995 ownership of the Museum was transferred to the Town of Lincoln.

The Town defined the Museum's mandate to “serve the cultural life of the community by acquiring, conserving, studying, contributing, assembling and exhibiting a collection of artifacts of historical significance for the instruction and enjoyment of the community”. The Museum continued to be referred to as the Jordan Historical Museum until 2017 when it relocated to an interim location. It is now known as The Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre: Home of the Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty.

In 2017, after approximately twenty years of advocacy and planning by the community and the municipality, work began on the construction project of the new museum facility. The new museum facility will open in Jordan in 2021.


Vision:

The Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre: Home of the Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty will be a vibrant gathering place that shapes our community by engaging and inspiring residents and visitors in the celebration of heritage and culture.


Mission:

The Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre: Home of the Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty is dedicated to the interpretation, exhibition, research, collection and preservation of past, present, and future narratives relevant to the Town and the Niagara Region. Enriching the cultural fabric of our community through inclusive engagements will empower us to listen, learn, and love our history.
