We are a 501c3 charitable organization. Our mission is to preserve, protect and promote Welsh history and culture. We are also proud to have preserved the beautiful old brick Welsh Congregational Church built in 1868 as the second home of the congregation.
The Welsh-American Heritage Museum was chartered in 1972, after a group of concerned local Welsh-Americans bought the building that had once been the Welsh Congregational Church in Oak Hill. The first curator was Mildred Jenkins Bangert, who spent the next forty years collecting books, artifacts and memorabilia on the Welsh settlement of this area of Jackson and Gallia Counties.
The Welsh-American Heritage Museum has had a long and storied history. You can read more about it here!
The Welsh Museum is now closed due to the COVID situation. We will reopen in spring 2021.
