Future Site of a New Agricultural Building

This historical museum building was acquired in 2002 and displays items that were once stored in 5 locations with no public access. The large adjacent Agricultural Building opened in May, 2010. In 2016, the historical society was able to purchase property across the street. An additonal Agricultural Building will be constructed on this site in the near future. Visit our museum often to see newly acquired artifacts. Our helpful volunteer staff is very willing to answer questions about the displays in the museum and Richardson County history.

We were pleased to have Paul Siebert, multi-acoustic instrumentalist and historian from the Nebraska Humanities Council at our Annual Meeting in August.
In his "Echoes of an Era," he entertained by playing unique instruments and singing songs about settlers in Nebraska and the symbolism of the Nebraska State Seal.
