This is a great small museum with lots of exhibits explaining the known history of Polk County. The museum also has several books and booklets for sale about Polk County History. There is now a reprint A Pictorial of History of Polk County which was first published in 1976. This is a large hard back book with a lot of interesting information about early settlers and lots and lots of pictures of them. The museum will have these books for sale.
