This 3-story native limestone building is a unique and magnificent example of the stonecutters art. The museum served as a High School from 1904 to 1929. From 1930 until the late 1960s the building housed all the sixth grades in the city as a departmental school. In the 1940s kindergarten classes were started in the basement. The building was donated to the historical society in 1982 as a permanent home for the museum. The museum features exhibits that portray the Native-American Indian period to the present through lifestyle exhibits and artifacts, exhibits the old Union Pacific Railways, one room school house and much more. Includes photos by J.J. Pennell. Further sites include the Starcke House and Spring Valley School Historical site.
