The Eugene V. Debs Museum

The Eugene V. Debs Museum is the former house of Eugene V. Debs and Katherine Metzel Debs. After changing hands for many years, it was purchased in 1962 by a small group of Terre Hautians who had a strong admiration for Debs. It is now owned and operated by the Debs Foundation as a free museum.

The interior of the museum features many of Debs’ possessions and other artifacts from his lifetime. The rooms are open for guests to wander, though we count on our guests respectful treatment of the collections.

The museum is open to the public and admission is free.

A $5 donation is appreciated — or better yet, join the Eugene V. Debs Foundation!
