   Sargent County Museum

The Sargent County Museum is located in Forman, North Dakota.  It  has 4 large buildings that are handicapped accessible and the first two are also climate controlled.  Along with these buildings it also has a one room school and a log cabin. Make the Sargent County Museum one of your next road trips.  The pictures below will give you a bit of an idea of what we have.

We try to stay up to date and have wireless internet and a meeting area to use.  Thanks to a grant from the North Dakota State Historical Society we also have a security system in all of our buildings.

We also have a computer in building #1 that is just for our cemetery project.  On this computer you will find all the cemeteries in the county mapped out with photos of the gravestones, obits(if we have them) and copies of the program cards from the funeral(if we have them).  This is a great resource if you are working on family histories in the area.

We also house the county newspapers that date back to the early 1900's and some to the late 1880's.  Many are also on Microfilm, and we have a Reader-Printer for your use also.  Please call or email and we can help with your research for a small fee.

Our Mission Statement

Sargent County Historical Society is a dynamic nonprofit organization that researches, and shares, the significant historical impact of Sargent County, on our state, nation and world. We excel in engaging and interactive experiences that are relevant, accessible and meaningful to all people. We do this through the preservation and interpretation of historic objects.

Our Vision Statement: Preserving and capturing items from today and yesterday that may be lost and forgotten if not for our help and museum to house them.
