Richland County Historical Museum

The Richland County Historical Museum, built in 1965 with an addition in 1984, now provides more than 12,500 square feet of display space making it possible to house a great variety of historical items. Admission is free.

The museum has one of the best Native American displays in the state.

See the collection of beautiful "Rosemeade" Potterydesigned by Laura Taylor Hughes, artist/sculptor. These collector's pieces were made locally at Wahpeton Pottery owned by Robert Hughes.

Unique to the museum is the guest register, which is the largest registration book in the world. People have been signing it since 1938.

Step back in time in the real "One Room School House" Building. It's located next to the museum, and represents a by-gone area in Richland County. 

If you are interested in Genealogy, the museum is home to a number of family histories.
