Lawton Heritage Museum

The Lawton Heritage Museum is nestled in the huge wine cellars of the Lawton Lions Heritage Community Center in the village of Lawton. The center itself is a unique architectural structure of cobblestone located in the heart of the “Fruit Belt” of southwest Michigan. The 1903 structure, a state and national historic site, is the state’s oldest standing winery building which makes it a most appropriate setting for the Museum.
