The Old Rugged Cross Historical Museum is an outgrowth of a memorial cross erected and dedicated on September 14, 1954, north of Reed City, Michigan, near the home of Reverend and Mrs. George Bennard.
Reverend Bennard was the author of well-loved hymn “The Old Rugged Cross” written in 1913. The museum presently contains mementos and relics not only from the Bennard home, but also from the original Osceola County Historical Museum, which was opened in downtown Reed City on August 1, 1968. The present museum opened August 19, 1990.
The museum’s third room is devoted to the life, possessions and music of the Reverend George Bennard. It contains furniture, personal items, and music form the Bennard home, which was located on Mackinaw Trail (Old US 131) 4 1⁄2 miles north of US 10.
