Henry County Heritage Trust’s (HCHT) Museum Campus
Howard & Helen Hills
Henry County Heritage Center

The museum's physical location is the historic former Saunders Elementary School building in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. It was named in memory of Howard and Helen Hills, due to a generous contribution from their children, Jared and Kent Hills.


Also located on our museum campus is the historic Van Allen home. It was carefully picked up and moved to its current location and converted to a museum to honor and showcase the Van Allen family and all their accomplishments.


Our buildings are full of ever changing exhibits and information of all kinds. We have everything from genealogy records to school memorabilia!
