Formerly the Michigan State Police post in the Village of Romeo, it was vacated in 1995,when the Romeo post merged with the Richmond, Michigan post. Originally built between 1935 and 1936, by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), it was one of twelve police posts built by the federal government to provide jobs for unemployed workers.

In order to preserve the building, the Historical Society, in partnership with the Romeo Methodist Church, purchased the post in 1997.

Since then, the Society has been restoring the building to use for storing and exhibiting Romeo memorabilia and archives.

Much of this information was provided by Romeo resident Richard Campbell. Mr. Campbell was assigned in 1976 as a Michigan State Trooper to work at the post. He lived for one year in the second floor dormitory, as was the custom at that time, and he remained stationed at the post until it was closed.
