Welcome to the Corner Museum Center's Online Collection!

The collections held at the Corner Museum Center are varied and extensive. They are composed of fine artwork, historical artifacts, natural history specimens, scientific papers, and a wide selection of books. While our end goal is to share the whole collection online, it is a work in progress. This website will be updated periodically to include new records, so check back often!

How to Search:


The Search button allows you to perform a general keyword search for any records online. You can search for object names, people's names, materials, titles, artists, authors, and subjects. To search for a specific phrase, be sure to put the phrase within quotes (i.e. "Rocky Pine Ranch"). Searches are not case sensitive. You can also use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard at the end of a word (i.e. a search for histor* would come up with records containing history, histories, historical, etc.).

Advanced Search

The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category, which may narrow down your search results. If you don't find what you are looking for with an Advanced Search, try using the Search option for a broader search.

Random Images

The Random Images button is a great way to just browse the collection. Each Random Images page displays an assortment of images from the records online. If something peaks your interest, click the hyperlink below the image to view the record.

Archives / Photos / Libraries / Objects

The catalog buttons can also help narrow down your search. If you only want to search for Photos, click the Photos button and type in your keyword(s) or phrase. You can also view records within that catalog without performing a search.
