Marengo County Historical Society

Marengo County Historical Society

This society is housed in the Laird Cottage/Geneva Mercer Museum, which interprets the life and preserves the work of Geneva Mercer, a sculptor, artist and Marengo County native.

The Laird Cottage/Geneva Mercer Museum is a restored 1870 residence with Greek Revival and Italianate style.

We hope you enjoy our work.
