Established in 1968. Purchased in 1944 as a place for a summer home, Harvey and Bernice Jones never expected to build an antique village. It was established in 1968 when Harvey built Bernice a church on the banks of the lake from bricks handmade before the civil war. Bernice named the Village by using the first three letters of each of their first names. Numerous buildings were added as the Joneses needed places to display the antiques and collectibles they gathered over the years. 98% of the items in Har-ber Village were purchased by the Joneses and the rest was donated. Har-Ber Village Museum's Mission is to collect and preserve historical items, authentic to the American experience, for the whole family to enjoy and understand within a scenic and inspirational setting.

The café at Harbor Village was great. We had a burger and chicken salad sandwich, and both were excellent. The server was nice and the food was served quickly. more »

My family really enjoyed the visit. We spent hours looking at all of the different displays. There's a huge variety of items! We easily could have spent more time there.

Must visit outdoor museum that was the private collection of Harvey and Bernice Jones. Many people don't know that Har-Ber road or "W 13th" is so named Har-Ber not Harbor because of Harvey and Bernice Jones. The road name has zero to do with a boat harbor.

We hadn't been there for about 40 years. We had the opportunity to go there once again and it is still a neat place to visit.
