Museum Treasures

Updated: May 17

Top to bottom, the Museum has treasures on each of its 3 floors, just waiting for you. 14 North Main Street - look for our building right in the middle of the block on historic Liberty square. Start at the top with the parlor, then tour the first floor both front and back, leaving the lower level for the grand finale! The newly remodeled lower level, formerly the basement, has Janie the Scarecrow and Bullseye the Sawhorse welcoming you to discover Clay County's historic past.

Early settlers came with family, livestock and dreams. Clay County was timber land needing to be cleared, fields waiting to be uncovered and planted and history to be written. The cottage industries demonstrate the various ways families were able to bring civilization to an untamed frontier.

Browse all three floors, ask the docent question and enjoy our past.
