About

Located in Countryside Park and operated by the Portage Community Historical Society, the Alton Goin Historical Museum houses many artifacts from the Portage region. In it, you'll find such exhibits as a miniature model replica of parts of the city, Indian artifacts and reproduced clothing, one of the old Township fire engines, Portage High School memorabilia, and other community antiques. Nearby stands the timber-framed farmhouse of Charles and Elizabeth Trager. The Trager Farm Historic Restoration Project restored the house to its original late nineteenth/early twentieth-century style and was completed in 2006. A barn, milkshed, toolhouse, and outhouse complete the farm setting. While visiting the museum, be sure to explore the surrounding Countryside Park, which is bordered on its south side by the 10.4-mile Prairie Duneland Trail. The museum is open Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Trager House is open on Saturdays.
