Now celebrating 20 years, The Coopersville Farm Museum was built in 2001 with the primary purpose to “honor farming and rural life.” While that purpose continues, the museum and event center has evolved into what is now a very active part of the community, very similar to the old grange halls in rural towns across America where people have gathered together for many years. The continually changing exhibits include collections from residents all over West Michigan, tractors on loan by the founder Ed Hanenburg, feed sacks, tools, and barbed wire donated by Corky Pals, and art from many very talented people. That’s just the beginning.
Regularly scheduled exhibits and events draw thousands of visitors to Coopersville every year. One popular exhibit is the “Quilts & Their Stories” exhibit which contains more than 150 quilts and is shown in August and September of each year. Another activity, Musical Jam Nights is scheduled twice a month year-round.
The Coopersville Farm Museum & Event Center is a representation of the community. Visit and take a leisurely stroll down Memory Lane and at the same time, you just may discover something brand new!
