The Clay County Historical Society’s History & Railroad Museum offers a broad range of documents and artifacts depicting the everyday activities and way of life in Clay County during the past century. There is a fully equipped train station and an irresistible red caboose on the campus at this Historical Triangle site as well. The collections include early phonographs, medical equipment, cameras, typewriters, toasters, sewing machines, dolls/dollhouse, vintage clothing, printing press, switchboard, telegraph and many other items of everyday working and living.
Except for holiday periods when the museum may be closed, exhibits are open each Sunday (2PM – 5PM). Historical Society volunteers provide staffing and are available for scheduled tours at other times if requested in advance.

Please note: The History & Railroad Museum (attached to the 1890 Historic Courthouse) is not staffed by Clerk’s Office, Archives Center or Teen Court staff. Historical Society volunteers man the museum whenever it is open to the public or when special events are held. Archives Center personnel partner with the Historical Society volunteers whenever possible but don’t have access to their building or materials.
