Huron City Museums

The Huron City Museums are owned and operated by the William Lyon Phelps Foundation, a private, charitable, tax exempt organization founded in 1947 by Charles A. Parcells, Sr. (1888-1948) to commemorate the teaching, writings and life of Yale professor of English, William Lyon Phelps (1865-1943).

The foundation is dedicated to educational and charitable purposes.
