The Ames History Center is located at 416 Douglas Avenue. The building was paid off in early 2012, but the Society continues to rent out about half of the building to cover operating costs. The Society occupies the entire first floor of the building, accessible from the main entrance on the corner of Douglas and 5th.
The History Center includes archival storage, offices, a media room, meeting space, and display space. Artifacts are currently stored in five off-site storage facilities. Our mission is to engage our diverse public and provide unique opportunities to learn about Ames history.
