~Preserving stories for tomorrow~


The Coopersville Farm Museum

is registered as a

501(c)(3) non-profit organization.


Built in 2001, the Coopersville Farm Museum & Event Center is designed around dynamic, changing themes which express the nature of rural, agricultural and farm life. As expressed by founder, Ed Hanenburg, who dedicated the museum to honor his father and mother, Peter & Coral Hanenburg…

“...We perceive our building (which Ed & Nancy Hanenburg donated in 2005) as a stage on which the scenery and players change regularly. We are convinced that is the best way to serve the community and the region as a cultural institution.”

The Hanenburg Family’s support is also seen through the Coopersville Area Community Foundation where a percentage of the Ed and Nancy Hanenburg Fund is donated to the Coopersville Farm Museum each year to help cover approximately 50% of operations. The doors are kept open through admissions, memberships, fundraisers, grants, and donations by people like you and the Hanenburg family.



To make a donation through the Coopersville Area Community Foundation please designate it to go to the Coopersville Farm Museum Fund. Your support helps insure that the Farm Museum will continue to serve both visitors and the community with an ever-changing and engaging venue for many years to come.
