  10. The Sutton Museum is the home of the Sutton Historical Society and is dedicated to the collection and preservation of historic artifacts and information about the Sutton, Nebraska community. The objective of the Sutton Historical Society is to collect and preserve the artifacts and information about the Sutton, Nebraska community. That’s a carefully worded statement that directs us to find and save things that are part of Sutton’s history and to find and record the story of Sutton’s past. The Museum has accumulated a respectable collection of Sutton related items, most donated by generous people who decided a valued item would be enjoyed by more if it were displayed in a publicly accessible place rather than remain where only a few even know about it. It’s an on-going program. We’re currently expecting two more very nice items. http://suttonhistoricalsociety.blogspot.com/ View full record

  13. Visit the oldest county museum in the state of Nebraska. The Washington County Museum has been operating since the 1920’s, first in the home of “Grandad” Woods, then in the old Fort Calhoun State Bank that went bankrupt during the depression. See this bank and museum in the heart of historic Fort Calhoun, just a short drive on Highway 75 north of Omaha. Our history starts with Lewis & Clark, who stopped here for their first council with the Otoe & Missouria native tribes. William Clark wrote home that this “council on the bluff” would be an ideal spot for a military installation, and 15 years later, Fort Atkinson was established as the largest fort of its day, home to the 6th Infantry. See artifacts from the digs at Fort Atkinson, then jump across the street to tour the rebuilt fort and 1820’s military life. See the history of this county that welcomed famous mountain men, Mormon Pioneers, and early homesteaders to Nebraska. The museum tells the story through Native American artifacts, military relics, and stories of the early pioneers. Our library contains thousands of genealogical records, old newspapers and court records relating to Washington County. http://www.wchamuseum.com/ While you are here, visit the 1905 Frahm House, located one block west, and see the story of the Frahm Family, early Fort Calhoun pioneers. This lovely Victorian Home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is available for tours, group functions and afternoon teas by appointment. Whether you are a Nebraska native wanting to see something new, or an out-of-state traveler looking for historic stops, call us today and we can help make your visit a step back in time.

  14. The Indianola Historical Society was formed May 27, 2008. A group of people who are interested in saving the history of Indianola and all Red Willow County got together and decided to start this project. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month. The president is Bill Baumbach and vice-president Pat Schaffert. The treasurer is Don Behnke. Since James J. (Jimmy) Sughroues passing it is Pat Schaffert who puts together a small 4 page news article called The Review that is filled with interesting articles and pictures of the past. We are trying to build a picture archive of the people. Any family photo, house or farmstead and just any kind of old picture that people have stored away some where in there homes would be of interest and could become part of this archive. We are always interested in ANY thing that pertains to Indianola or any of the other surrounding towns including Bartley, Danbury, Marion and Lebanon. We will copy and guarantee the return of all old pictures. We will gladly share what we have with anyone who is interested. http://history.indianolane.com/ Indianola Historical Society Box 338 Indianola, NE 69034 View full record
