The Rooks County Historical Society and Frank Walker Museum offer a glimpse into the history of Rooks County. A Pete Felten limestone sculpture of a draft horse marks this museum. The outdoor sculpture and a small display within commemorate one of the most famous and largest horse barns in the state, the 1912 classic Thomas Big Barn, near Woodston. It was struck by lightning and destroyed by fire just as renovation was completed in 1995.
The museum also features county and town exhibits and photos, the Zelma Rader Atherton doll collection, and a photo display of many courthouses found in the state.
Open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
