About Powers Museum

The Powers Museum is not in fact, a museum about electricity and energy as the name might suggest, but IS in fact a fascinating museum that serves as a memorial to the parents of Marian Winchester - Marian Powers Wright and Dr Everett Powers, both of whom were active participants in the development of Cathage.

The Powers Museum also houses, preserves and displays all of the family possessions of value once owned by Marian Powers Wright.

Since it was founded, the museum's collection has gone on to include a number of other objects of Cathage history, most notably the full archive from the Bank of Cathage, as well as items from the Hercules Powder Company.

The museum's exhibits change annually, so you can always visit to see something new. The exhibits focus on a particular topic each time, so one visit you might be exploring WWI, and the next you might be exploring ladies fashion of the early 1900s.

The Powers Museum is a fascinating insight into a family that were so prominent and integral to the region, so why not delve into the history books on your next family day out in Missouri?!
