“step back in time”
Step back in time to a less complicated life when water came from the cistern, there was a fireplace in every room for heat and forms of elegance could be found in decor to glassware. The Wing House Museum located at 27 S. Jefferson Street in Coldwater, Michigan is a prime example of 19th century Second Empire architecture. Learn how families worked and thrived in the late 1800’s at this home museum that is one of the few open year-around to the public by appointment. The home was built for newlyweds Jay and Frances Chandler in 1875. Discover the turn of events that led to the dissolution of their marriage and the subsequent sale of their beautiful home to prominent businessman Lucius Wing in 1882. Home was purchased from the Wing Family and became home to the Branch County Historical Society. The Society hosts an annual Holiday Home Tour and Old Fashioned Wassail the first Saturday in December, Friday Night Desserts following Tibbits professional players performances, they host private dinners, luncheons and other fund raisers to keep this jewel maintained.The Branch County Historical Society is committed to preserving the heritage of the County, including Bronson, Coldwater, Quincy and Union City. We are always looking for new ideas and members to help with this cause.
