The mission of the Amery Area Historical Society (AAHS) is the collection, preservation, and dissemination of materials and information relating to the history of Amery, Wisconsin, and its surrounding area.  The Amery Area Historical Society provides programs and educational resources about the Amery area. It serves as a repository for photographs, home movies, oral and taped video interviews and memorabilia from the days Amery was known as Big Dam. Amery has long been known for its community spirit and its beauty as “the City of Lakes.” 

The Amery Area Historical Society (AAHS) was formed in 1998. For several years the AAHS museum existed in a space provided by the City of Amery in the previous Amery Public Library basement.  As of December 2021, the building was sold, and we had to find a space to store our collection.  The City was kind enough to provide a 10x12 space in the lower level of the new Library for our use.  This space, however, is only large enough to hold our office.   Ron Anderson stepped up and offered us a temporary space in his building on main street as storage for our museum collection.  That building has now been sold and we are once again searching for options.
