Whether you’re a history buff or just like old things, the North Lincoln County Historical Museum is a real treat! Founded in 1987 through the initiative and hard work of the North Lincoln County Pioneer and Historical Association, it began with 110 charter members in a small storefront. Today, the museum’s exhibits, research library, offices and store are in an historic two-story building, built in 1941 as the Taft-Nelscott-Delake Fire Hall. In 2004, a new building addition was completed, more than doubling the original building size.

Exhibits in the downstairs gallery include displays on Native American history with examples of baskets and bead work, early settlement and homesteading displays that show early tools and household items, and dairy, fishing, and cannery displays with artifacts from those industries.

The upstairs gallery focuses on tourism, celebrating the age of the automobile with information on the first cars and roads. Roadside attractions, early tourism promotions, and one-of-a-kind businesses are included. A hands-on children’s corner will keep younger children entertained while their parents tour the museum. Admission and parking are free!
