Museum

The Liberty County Museum

Originally built as the First Church of the Community, this former Methodist/Episcopal Church building became the Liberty County Museum in 1969. Now on the National Historic Registry, it is part of a growing museum complex, preserving artifacts, photographs and other historical, artistic, and scientific items.

There are Outside Center & Living Exhibits, Hay Coulee School educational exhibits, Gau Building Historical exhibits, and the Main Museum buildings. Each area stresses authentic displays of the Homestead Era. 

Share the blacksmith’s backbreaking work, sit in the sheepherder’s wagon, & imagine a trip behind a horse pulling the plowshare! Take time to peruse through the collection of original newspapers, pictures, obituaries, wedding articles, local historical books, original scrap books, year books, farm histories, & vertical files. Check out the new digital archives available.
