The Crowley County Heritage Center is a fantastic place to learn about the history of the county and the families who homesteaded the area. Thanks to the museum’s resources, including archived newspapers dating back to 1902, visitors can discover the area’s traditions and its residents of the past.
Crowley County Heritage Center used to function as a school from 1914-1992, after which it became a State Historical Property in 1993 and joined the National Historic list in 1999. The museum portion of the building is home to several points of interest including WWII uniforms with photographs of their original owners, old war stamps, and tales of the era in the west room.
Cookware belonging to popular former locals, an ancient version of a crockpot, and various beautiful horse saddles are just a few examples of other items that can be seen on display. Dresses from the early 1900s and an old projector from the Princess Movie Theater in Orwady are also in the museum.
Other histories pertaining to businesses, cultures, and specific families that represent the past of Crowley County can also be researched in the museum. The center also has a banquet hall that’s available to rent for both large and small events.
