The Lyon County Historical Society exists to preserve and to present to future generations the history of the county and area. To accomplish this we operate a museum located in downtown Marshall and have small auxiliary buildings located on the grounds of the West Side Elementary School and the Lyon County fairgrounds. We have outgrown the present museum site so are presently in search of a larger permanent home that will allow us to program exhibits for children and adults. For example, we would like space to put our 1950’s style soda fountain back into action as an actual working display and to have classroom space available for school, club and other organizations to use as they learn about history here in Southwest Minnesota. Any and all help in obtaining a new facility would be very much appreciated.
