Amazing and well taken care of displays. Variety and covered the early days. The school house was superior and all buildings. Spent hours there and loved seeing items I remember or still own from my family.

You can tour on your own all the buildings and take as long as you like to see history. Great on the 4th. Used for weddings, wedding receptions, school reunions, family reunions. Free of charge during the Nobles County Fair.
