The Clinton E. Wilder Museum was established in 1990 by National Forge Chairman, Robert O. Wilder and dedicated to Clinton E. Wilder, one of the company’s original founders. The museum is housed in the vacated Irvine Elementary school on Erie Avenue. The museum has over 20 areas displaying early settlers of Warren County, from Native American artifacts to military collections dated from 1860’s to the 1990’s.
Just past the Museum along Route 6 is the Warren County Visitors center. Stop and learn the story of how the Arch in St. Louis has routes from Warren County. There is a miniature statue replica on the property and this can be seen from Route 6. Also the helpful staff at the visitor Center can help you decided the best places to eat and stay.
