We hope this website will help you get familiar with the museum and find all the information you need to plan your visit.


The membership meeting is held at the LaBelle Heritage Museum (360 N. Bridge St) on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm. Come early or stay late to converse with others who are interested in the history of the City of LaBelle and surrounding areas.


We have a very interesting fossil exhibit. The artifacts on display are all from the local area around LaBelle.


Our files contain information and pictures about local families that can't be found any place else.  We also have many decades of old newspapers from which you can find information about LaBelle and the surrounding area.
