In the past, much effort was put forth by various citizens of the county; and as a result, we have a great collection of items of historical value. Times, however are changing; and the losses due to the Flood of 1997 have necessitated a whole new perspective on what is necessary for us to continue with a program to serve Norman County. In 2000, the Historical Society took on the project of building a new log museum to be located on the grounds of the Prairie Village. This building allows for an exhibit area that meets the needs and demands of today's society. We need the support of many people in order to continue this venture.
