The Nemaha County Historical Society is located in what was the the Nemaha County Jail. The Jail also served as the Sheriff’s residence. Constructed in 1879, it was Kansas’ longest in-use County Jail until the new Jail was built in 1976. At this time the Nemaha County Historical Society bought the building and converted it into a museum.
The museum houses artifacts of the area’s settlers and displays depicting Nemaha County’s history. As the inventory grew, two additional buildings were added. Tours of the Museum, Jail and Residence can be arranged by calling or e-mail.
