The Sherman County Historical Society was founded in 1977 to collect, protect and preserve the history and heritage of the communities of Sherman County; those that are living communities today as well as those that are just memories. Most of our collections are the result of donations by residents of the county.
The museum collection is housed in several buildings that have been saved from around the county and moved to our site on the edge of Loup City. These include the Hawk Schoolhouse, the Ohlsen/Jenner House and the Austin School.
The Historical Society is open every Sunday from Memorial Day to Labor Day from 1:00-4:00PM. It can also be opened anytime by appointment.
In addition to the Historical Society Facility, The Sherman County Research Center is now open at 740 O St in Loup City with a phone number of 308.745.5545. If you would like to visit the Research Center, please contact any of the following members below:
