When the citizens of the town of Ceredo, West Virginia, understood the importance of their land to history, they organized to form a museum. The Ceredo Historical Society was founded to encourage preserving the history and heritage of the town. The Ceredo Museum was housed in an old water pump house on Main Street. For a time the operations of the museum was placed on hold when the director left, but soon after the town citizens realized the importance of preserving history thus the museum was reopened.

Later on the collection got larger that the Ceredo Historical Society felt it would be best to move the museum to a larger location. After much help from two grants that the society was able to secure for the museum, its present location opened on October 22, 1995.

The exhibits in the museum include relics from the civil war, such as letters, requisitions, and cannonballs. There is also a large collection about the early history of Ceredo, the schools, the railroads, as well as a library filled with books about the area.
