Welcome!

 
 
Come. . . and browse... You can see a mammoth’s teeth and bones, a general store, the Setterlund Runestone, a 1909 REO, a barber shop, an Ox Cart, a model of Fort Pomme de Terre, a birch bark canoe, and numerous other pieces. Or, you can research your family through the archives of old newspapers, family histories, census records, plat books, or cemetery records.
 
Don’t leave without seeing the Veterans Memorial Hall honoring the many service members from Grant County.
