Come see the new building
it is 70 feet by 172 feet and filled with horse drawn equipment and items from that era.
We also have a new security system thanks to a grant from the ND State Historical Society.
With these updates we have made a nice larger meeting area and we now have wireless internet in the building.
We have also started mapping all the cemetaries in Sargent County with pictures of the grave markers. We have also added a copy of the obits we can find to the project. We have the project all on a computer, in the museum, for you to look at. Just ask to see it.
The County Newspapers that we have date back to the early 1900's.
Most of these are on Microfilm, and a Reader-Printer is available for you to do your research on. Please call or e-mail, and we can help you with your search for a small fee.
