The Lincoln County Historical Society maintains the Museum complex, preserving the rich cultural and historical legacy of our area.
THE MAIN BUILDING CONTAINS . . .
The Museum contains our treasures of life in Lincoln County, including period room settings, china, quilts, fashions, furniture, a doctor's office, telephone office, post office, beauty shop, DAR collection, natural history, a model
railroad, railroad history and lots of photographs. We are proud of our contribution to the Military.
For 51 months, 24 hours per day, throughout World War II, the citizens of this area met every U.S. Military train, providing food, treats, and hospitality to an astounding 2-3 thousand soldiers per day! The Canteen is a tribute to the spirit, generosity
and faithfulness of these amazing people.
The Frank and Fred Leu Memorial Wing was added in 1993. It now contains 4 mounted longhorn steers, a buffalo, and western art and photographs. The new gallery will continue to expand the story of western and ranching history
of our area.
