The Meeker Home Museum is the home of Nathan Meeker. It has been through various changes, but today it is set up to be like it may have been when the Meekers lived there.
One of the additions to the home was a large front porch that surrounded the home. The porch was removed in 1958.
In 1970, the home was placed on the National Register of the Historical Society. The home was further stabilized and the interior (inside rooms) decorated in 1995.
