They have Native American artifacts, and are told it is one of the best between here and Bismarck! See their collection of beautiful “Rosemeade" Pottery designed by Laura Taylor Hughes Artist/Sculptor.  These collector’s pieces were made locally at Wahpeton Pottery owned by Robert Hughes. Unique to their museum is the guest register which is the largest registration book in the world!  People have been signing it since 1938. Step back in time, with their real “One Room School House" Building.  It is located next to the museum and is a from
a by-gone area in Richland County. Children especially enjoy seeing how their Grandparents attended rural school. Visit their many “rooms" in the museum showing scenes from early homes with furnishings and amenities of the day.  They also have many “shops” in their lower level depicting lifestyles of yesteryear. If you are interested in Genealogy, they have a number
