HISTORICAL MUSEUM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hundreds of artifacts and articles from the prehistoric through the pioneer "sodbuster" days are displayed.  Early day cattle brands are displayed around the walls and the wall-mounted picture album depicts people and events from early days of Banner County.  Completely furnished kitchen, living room and bedroom settings are attractively presented.  Numerous display cases exhibit rare china and glassware, toys, clothing quilts, books, firearms and more from sod house and log cabin days.  There is a case with frames of Indian arrowheads, war clubs, scrapers, knives and tomahawks - reminders of the many tribes that once roamed the hills and canyons of the county.  Notice the identification sign on the front of the building, "Banner County Museum."  It was constructed from the "tug chains" of 76 sets of harness.

Area cattle brands surround the room below the ceiling
