The Historic Association of Greater Cape

The Historical Association of Greater Cape Girardeau, Inc., is a
non-profit organization that nurtures among local residents and
visitors a knowledge of, and appreciation for, the heritage of
Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  

To realize this purpose, the Historical Association operates The
Glenn House, a house museum listed on the National Register
of Historic Places, to document, preserve and interpret for the
public the Victorian era architecture, social history and material
culture associated with Cape Girardeau's boom years at the turn
of the twentieth century.

The HAGCG was formed in 1968 with the purpose of restoring
the Glenn House for use as a historical home/museum.  The
house, which was donated by the Erlbacher family, was restored
in the 1970s and has operated as a unique example of a 1900
era Victorian style home of Cape Girardeau. The Association is
an all volunteer organization that works to maintain and operate
the house as a museum to share a part of the local heritage.
