Morton House

The Morton House Museum is the oldest building in Benton Harbor!

Built in 1849, by pioneer Eleazar Morton and his son Henry, this house became the meeting place for those who founded the city of Benton Habor. Henry Morton's son Stanley pioneered the steamboat industry in this area and also held many local official posts. He died in 1936, after modernizing the house, and deeded it to the Federation of Women's Clubs. They started the house as a museum in the early 1960s and it continues to today. 

Donating to the Morton House will help maintain upkeep and fund historical relics.
